So the park is Walls of Jerusalem, and there are 2 separate lakes in view...
and the clouds at the back are hiding Mersey Crag and Turrana Bluff..

Probably wrong, but is that the lagoon on the Isthmus track between Wineglass and Hazards beaches?

Looks a little like Kelly Basin just before you reach the ruins of East Pillinger?

Are you near the ski tow above the Rodway day shelter, near Tarn Shelf? That would be Lake Seal below I think.

Thanks L_Cham_67. I've been there a couple of times, last one in a howling gale and driving rain but no snow.

Not McCoy Falls, not that remote. I should add that these falls are probably challenging to recognise compared with their normal flow.

With the fallen tree, that's got to be Russell Falls.

Neither Russell or Liffey, but Liffey is geographically a bit closer.

Sure is, a lotta rain during this trip to Tas. I was astonished at the flow and the noise was incredible. All yours.

Righto, see if this will help a bit:
It's in the southern half of the state, and is a short detour off a popular hike

I'll post another clue tonight if no-one can get it still.
