    No it's not Bell Creek nor Geromimo. You're still in the right area. The clue is it's mainstream, ie popular. And I mean REALLY popular.

    Re: Where is this? No10

    No posts for two days, so I'll offer a photo from a fairly recent trip to get the ball rolling aagin. It shouldn't be too hard because this is a fairly easily identified landmark.

    Edit. Yes I know the horizon isn't straight, I was hanging from a tree when I took the photo.

    I'd say bottom end of tasman peninsula (eer, not storm point aah eer?) or out on maria island. Dont get basalt flutes in the sea like that anywhere else. Last time i was on maria i was 5 years old so i'm a little vague on landmark names.....Up late Bogong?

    The Island looks too far away to be hippolyte rock viewed from cape Huay, but my memory is foggy on that.

    Actually, it looks more like dauntless point looking out to black rock, or maybe cape fredric hendrick.

    Re: Where is this? No10

    Beeper's got it right. Cape Huay on the Tasman Peninsula. But the question is how the hell do you say it? I heard a local at Port Arthur pronounce it and it sounded like they were coughing up phelgm!

    The island 6 km away in the background is Hippolyte Rocks, so champion_michael's correct on that.

    Next photo please.

    to steep on both sides for that currawong. I'm pretty sure its Mt Bogong sticking out of the clouds in the distance. I guessing its taken from somewhere on the Mt Buffalo plateau.

    Re: Where is this? No10

    I'm with Craig. The two spurs sticking out in our direction look a bit like T-Spur and Long Spur, and Mt Wills has plenty of boulders like those in the foreground.

    But then again, I'm not totally convinced, it could be something else entirely.

    Re: Where is this? No10

    Yes, Bogong from Wills.

    inigo montoya, your pole might be part of a snow course, which is a series of poles used to determine average snow depth. A lot of poles, widely spread with a range of aspects give a reasonably accurate average snow depth. This is used for predicting river flow when the snow melts, for power generation.

    From memory, there is one across the Spencers Creek valley though your picture looks more like the upper Snowy valley.

    As for the yabby, they live in holes in the ground.

    Re: Where is this? No10

    Its in the valley between Seamans Hut and Mt Clarke.

    Post may be to measure snow depth - it looks similar to the spencers creek poles. Theres similar posts just down stream of Lake Cootaputumba and i saw guys on skidoos riding past them during august last year.

    The shell - farked if i know. An easter camper that forgot the poo tube. Would have scratched on the way out.

    Just down further you'll find this (excuse out of focus shot):

    [​IMG]

    Not sure what it is but at the time i thought it may be associated with the cloud seeding project. Would love to find out more.

    Go to some of the more remote untracked ranges in Tassie and if you hit a rare dry spell, the only water you will find is in yabby holes. Sounds gross, but they're quite clean and you soon get used to it [​IMG]

    My first impression of JAM's shot was bogong, but I couldn't reconcile the shape with a vantage point. I knew it wasn't buffalo. I haven't been up wills, and didn't realise the view would be so good. The profile of the west peak didn't seem right, but I've never seen that angle. Live and learn.

    Snow Bloweys shot could also be bogong, looking down the kiewa valley

    Western face of South Ramshead, looking towards Khancoban? (Looks like the Swampy Plain River in the background).

    No idea who the forum member is though.
