Back to NSW. What's the prominent peak in the left of the frame?

Easy bonus points for identifying where I took the photo from.

No idea where it’s taken from - you’ll have to tell us.

Next photo is NSW...

I sense you are North of Porcupine Rocks. Andrews Lookout?

You are in the right vicinity. I am WSW of Andrews Lookout. (Sorry about the picture quality - I had to downsize it to get it accepted by the web site).

Not sure where Andrews lookout is and my own photos aren't handy, but this reminds me a bit of Mt Perisher.

Mount Perisher is getting very close, but this trig point doesn't have a name (other than SMA###).

People often call it the Paralyser.

I was thinking that the Paralyser was the trig to the south of this one, but I'm really not sure. This one is SMA0318. So over to you, Zapruda.

Thanks mate. I think the one to the south and also the high point in the middle are all interchangeably referred to as the Paralyser. I could be wrong, I normally am...

NSW. Bonus points if someone can guess where I’m roughly standing.

Are you on Mann Bluff, or at least heading that way from Consett Stephen Pass. Looking over Anderson Ridge across to Watsons Crags.

Correct for Watsons Crags but I am on the ridge north of Mt Tate near SMA 0692.

All yours mate.

Ha, I was looking at Tate West Ridge just this morning thinking about my next hike (and trying to pinpoint a Tarn near Mann Bluff)
Not too far away in NSW. Name the road, even better, where I'm heading.

Reminds me of a couple of spots, both on the Snowy Mountains Highway - heading north-ish towards Adaminaby, or further on around Long Plain/Yarrangobilly.

Thanks crollsurf, I was fairly confident it had to be along that stretch somewhere.

I promised to find something outside NSW for a change. Here's one from QLD, just name the waterway:

Not the Noosa River but I can see the similarity. I'm south of Brisbane.

Getting close. I'm maybe 10-20 km south of there.

Yes cajun, Tallebudgera Creek near the wildlife park inland from Burleigh Head.
On one of the nice "hidden" short walks I've discovered around the Gold Coast. Over to you.

A quick game is ...

Sure is Tyreless over to you. We found a pair of Rossignol X country skis on Stilwell Trig.

Unfortunately it is smoke, not mist in the background.
