Zapruda is broadly correct, but I have to give it to crollsurf for accuracy as I'm standing on the Illawong bridge.

Thanks johnw, crossed that bridge many a time over the years. Still in NSW from last weekend, with a bit of desperately needed rain hanging around. Where am I standing?

This is one of only a couple of spots I've managed to visit in the Budawangs region so far - I reckon you're on Mt Bushwalker.

Not Mt Portal but would be about the same elevation and not all that far away, relatively speaking.

Thanks. I've been there quite a few times, summer and winter. This is in Victoria.

Thought processes....
Is the rock type unique..... probably not
Is the skyline unique ..... what skyline
Is the vegetation unique.... no
Is the river big? Fair to middling as a stream.

This is very distinctive part of a Victorian river. It's close to a walking track and a 4WD track, and comes from a wilderness area. I have not seen anything like this elsewhere in Victoria.

Looks like it could be in the high country. Is it the Upper Howqua River.
If not, is it in the Apline National Park?

It's on the Gippsland side, not that high. I cannot locate a current map, and suspect that it may be state forest or the like. There's a reference or wilderness area nearby.

That is a beautifully expressed non-answer, eggs.

I will also exit stage left . . . right and centre (no co-ords avaialble).

Correct. This part of the Avon has a name, The Channel.

Thanks Lops

I was camped on the Avon a few weeks back and didn't quite get down to the channel, however enough similarities with the rocks in the area to guess the river.

This ones in Victoria.

Indeed it was. I was sitting atop admiring the views in brilliant sunshine 10 minutes earlier. One minute after this photo was taken Mt Loch was gone from view with the cloud bottom sitting pretty much level with the base of the rocks.

Mr Eggs -it's all yours.
