Yep, Lake St Clair, but when you have your own boat, you can travel when you like.

Looks a bit like that region but I'm a long way from there. Not Tarkine, or anywhere on the west coast.

Thanks John
Here's a picture from where I was planning to revisit this weekend before the park closures came into effect. Where is it?
Sorry for the poor image quality :(

I've seen many similar places in Tasmania but it reminds me a little of the Bird River track.

Good enough WFBW. Heading south just past Lake Youd and started seeing these masses of flowering scoparia. All yours.

I was about to say Cuvier Shelf, but the angles aren't right. I think Coal Hill fits better.

This was on day one of what ended up being an 8 day trip to bag an Abel that I missed on my first visit.

There aren't many places where you would need eight days to bag an Abel. Eldon Range seems most likely, and that does look a lot like the area where you run out of easier ground and have to start thinking seriously about rock-hopping, Whilst on the way up Eldon Peak from Burbury.

Thanks. Needed the clues for that.

I also (re)climbned an Abel during this relaxing little ramble, although I'm not yet on it. Where Is I?

I should point out - I wouldn't have needed 8 days if it weren't for the 3 days stuck in a tent!

Are you on the Ironstone plateau?
