Not sure if I remember the name. But may be The Govenors from Mt McDonald. Definitely the flat topped mountain in the distance is Mt Timbertop.
That's it, and we were on our way up McDonald! It's not far south of Buller. Anyone seen it with a good cover?

I would have picked it as being taken from just below Speculation. Dug in a snowcave about 20 yards further on from there many many moons ago.

Reckon I'll need some hints if I even know these. Is it in the Wonangatta ?

If I had to take a wild swing I'd say Conglomerate Falls.

correct on two counts. Conglomerate falls ends up in the Wonangata. Oh and you got the Speculation one correct as well.

Phew, I surprise myself every now and again (although the Specy one wasn't as difficult).

My BIL proposed to my sister on Mt Speculation, which seemed appropriate at the time.

Is the bottom one in the Brindabellas somewhere? Complete guess.
It seems to stick out too much from its surroundings to be Brindies. I'm guessing, wildly I'll admit, at Mt Dromedary.

Cheerio.

. But that would put you inbounds at Guthega somewhere, and it doesn't look right.

I hate that. I posted my response to this page, I see the resulting page... and legend's post was not there. Now I come back...

Oh well.

Legend didn't specify where it was taken from, btw. As asked.

This one was off our map at the time as we were climbing Mt? when the pic was taken. We called it Doubleblack Mountain until we knew better.
Suddder, Mt Mcdonald. I know it as the Death Mountain. I started in the afternoon from a 4wd track. We hiked up along what seemed to be a rather non existant track that then suddenly turned into cliffs with loose rocks. These clifs wern't on map I might add.

Our hike leader didnt think it was safe enough for us to walk up some sections with our packs on. Our leader feared that the school wouldnt have been happy with serious injuries, she was probably right too.

Anyway, the Sun began to drop, we didn't make our intended campsite and we hadn't passed/found any extra water this day, and had to ration water. We subsequently made camp in a space that seemed flat. The campsite wasn't highly protective from wind, but we didnt have many other opportunites with a group as large as ours.

That night was very windy and very cold for all in our inadequate sleeping bags. It was also very windy inside our tent as the Zip on the Fly didn't actually hold shut and opened right up. And there was only a mesh door. I found that wraping my Japara/rain coat around my sleeping bag worked quite well (well enough to survive).

It didn't thankfully rain, however I remember waking in the morning walking 15 metres from the campsite and taking a ****. Then I turned around to walk back, and I couldnt see any tents, only thick white mist (cloud). Then 20 secs later the cloud moved on with the wind and I could see our tents again.

After we packed our tents and all got cold fingers from the pegs, we continued to walk on. We zig zagged our way up a steep sleepery grassy and muddy slope. The mist was still thick and the air was cold and again the track was not obvious.

This is where my memory of this morning becomes a tadd hazy. We briefly stopped at what seemed to be a rock wall/pile about 2 metres high with a few smaller rocks infront of this large wall. We stopped to have a break and access the situation.

The next think I know is I am lying on the ground close to the slope with everyone around me and the group leaders very worried. What happened is I sat on a rock quite normally and apparently just rolled off, however I luckily didn't keep rolling once I hit the ground (maybe my pack helped).

Well I was quite obviously Hypothermic, becuase I tried to be a tough guy and save my water for as long as possible. Luckily in someways, what caused my Hypothermia (dehydration) was also what helped me recover. I was the only one carrying water.

Then after about 10-20mins of shivvering and crying for slowing the group down I was good to go.

After that the rest of the hike was fantastic. We subsequently made our first nights campsite on the second night and got water.
We then went over both Billies and is it possible we went on Mt Willam too??

Just my little horror story. What I have learned from the experience, Carrying warm, heavy sleeoing bags, using high quality expensive tents and carrying water may make a heavy pack, but it also make me a happy camper.

Is it the Little Viking ? Taken from the Viking itself.

Or did I get that back to front ? Or am I way off the mark ?

Wonboyn Lake. Upstream or downstream from the boat ramp? Very nice! Are you still coming this way off season, Carveman?

OK, time for a couple of clues, but no points for partial anwers anymore
ms.jpg

(1)The little bird dug by the lake while the mechanical harvester picked fruit.
(2)The fisherman's place of worship has been the subject of a TV program. The geologist's place of worship has not.

Wow. I was just thinking of visiting this lake very soon for a few casts ! Had never heard of it but saw it on a map and thought it looked awesome.

Graeme, Yet again my leave has been rejigged, but I have managed to get some with a rider to be able to head back if we score a major project. Have thought I might head south, have a fish, and then head up to the mtns for a few daytrips. Is there easy lake access for a kayak, or somewhere to hire a tinny, somewhere to camp, that kind of stuff, at Womboyne ? I'd be solo.

Apologies for the thread hijack. Any PM's info gratefully recieved Graeme, CM, anyone !

Graeme, the one of Green cape is taken from a place call city rocks. It was a dirt track off the right hand side of the rd. I had know idea what was down there and was just off for a walk. Found this place and ran back to the car for my shoes, chalk bag and crash pad. I spent the next 6 hours bouldering and did at least 5 x star problems between vo and v6. The place was great.

now it makes sense to me - seemed too much foreshortening between foreground and background for what I was thinking. City Rocks is best known to fisherman - land based game fishing from there if northeast wind; from Pulpit Rock on the other side if opposite wind. I often go for a dip or a dive in the area, but I am not serious with fishing and don't often go the City Rocks as such. Green Cape also good for land based whale watching.

I love cryptic crosswords.

Pity my brain has been contracted out for the day on other stuff, such as work.

Aha - Red Robin Mine, Bogong High Plains

Geez you've turned tough graeme.

Ok , you left hotham at 9am after bacon and eggs, you climbed over loch, there by 11, you went down the Machinery spur to red robin mine. Thats a bit of the razorback in the background, as the shadows tell me your facing west. Otherwise, it would be loking down into cobungra gap, maybe you've reversed the photo to fool us.

You had cabana and cheese for lunch from 1 to 2, a bit of hot tea from your thermos, shagged the girl from 2pm - 2.19pm in your tent that you pitched just to the right of the rock, thought about staying because it was all so lovely in there, but it was such a niceday mid-september, and being invigorated, packed up the tent and climbed back over loch to the carpark and were drinking Stolles in your lodge by 6.
