I think you're at that little lake/tarn near the top of The Guardians. Last time I was there we had a long swim because it was very hot.

Spot on with the background, but we were at an un-named lake near a summit, a tad further away than the Labyrinth itself. I would have zoomed in somewhat.

You nailed it, Graham. No swimming this time, but what a stunner of a place. :)

It's a beautiful and isolated spot. I can't post the pictures my wife took of me even though they're back on.

Where was I camping on this occasion?

Pretty sure I'm wrong, but it's worth a try I guess. The rounded peak in the background looks a little like Snowy North, which would make the closer peak Wetpants Peak, and you on the way up to Nevada Peak?

Looks very west coast, but I can't think where. Might have to do a bit of googling...

I'll give that to you. While it isn't actually in Pillinger, it is an old bridge on the way in to the abandoned town located 100-200 metres away from the track start. It was built for the town all those years ago, and which the track now follows. That walk through the rainforest alongside the Bird River is one of my favourite low altitude walks. The rainforest and Bird River are beautiful!

Lots of people had a look but no suggestions.
This would be a good place to bring a small axe. And I'm not entirely sure but those mountains could be named after the Duke of Cambridge.

Not too far from Musselroe Bay but the first part of my clue should tell you the name of the beach.

In that case, it must have been taken at Tomahawk :)

There are apparently some 100+ of those cairns left to choose from, but is it Penny West??
