    could be Dove Lake rather than Crater Lake. Crater Lake is west of the Overland Track as you climb to Marions Lookout. Dove Lake is to the east of the track, and has road access.

    I think it is too Graeme. Looks like it is from Truganni Tk looking towards Lake Will (hidden in misty valley).

    This is a special hijack for Legend and Carveman. Just intereted to see if they know this place or have been there. For others you can call it "that nagee place" and put up another pic - though I suppose you might be able to work it out from maps or Google Earth once honed in to Nadgee.

    Graeme is that Nagee the same Nadgee i went to a few years ago? South of Eden. Near the border. Nobody there. Dingoes in the southern section. Lots of orchids. Walked into a beautiful creek running into the sea with millions of crabs. Lots of mossies. Some great rock ledges where we could watch the wobbegong sharks cruising the edges.? Cant remember the creek / rivers' name.

    Graeme - looks like the little bit of beach a bit further north from Jane Spiers. No idea what it's called.

    i've looked back and it looks very much like where we went, merrica river it must be. Is it an hour or 2's walk from the carpark, with the camping in the trees on the left in carvemans' pic of the estuary bit of the river. It was very noice.

    Graeme, it's a beaut little unnamed beach about a km north of Jane Spiers. There's a little stream running into it.
    Here's another one looking in the opposite direction from near where you took yours.

    Carveman and Legend have it right - over through some scratchyourlegstobits heath from north end of JS, or a bush bash from the track further inland. Rarely visited. No official name. I call it "Dingo's" because the first time I went there there was a dingo pup at he ranger station that followed us in and out again.

    mr, thats the same Nadgee, though I doubt whether you went to the above beach which is a few km south of Merrica, with no track leading to it. Merrica Esturary is as you describe.

    Has sidetrack's been answered? I have some backseat advice it is Lake oberon in the W. Arthurs. I thought it was Crater, too

    It could be a few places in the W.Arthurs, but the viewing angle does not look right for L.Oberon. If it is not here or around Cradle there are about a dozen places in Tas it could be.

    Thanks Beeper, We were meant to have 8 days on the range, but spent 3 days sitting it out on High Moor. I'm glad we took the extra food (I've always carried a bit extra but in 30 something years have never needed it).

    There's few places like this in the general vicinity of Hotham. Mt Battery is the only one I've been this close to - but I suspect its one of the others.

    Basalt Temple off the side of Mt Jim.
    My second choice would be Mt Warwick on the Wabonga Plateau.

    There are other possible locations, (mostly on big block streams), but people aren't likely to be carrying overnight packs at locations like south west of Golden Point or the quarry at Langford Gap.

    Basalt Temple - I've only been there with snow cover, but I would regard it as near to Hotham (closer than Mt Battery)

    Theres one into Dargo Valley too, visible form Slatey Cutting. I would say in the vicinity of Boiler Plain, but its an area with no tracks not commonly visited. I haven't been there either, just looked at it across the valley and thought about going there sometime via Paw Paw Plain. Places like this go in the category of "Lizard Heaven"

    It's located roughly half way between Canberra and Sydney.
