Yes, it is the Brassys on the horizon, but from a different angle.

Oops, went the wrong way. In that case I'm guessing this is overlooking the Burrungubbe River and Dead Horse Creek valleys.
Big Brassy Peak in view?

Yes close enough Stef, definitely on the way back from Teddys. I think we were a bit further down the valley at this point. All yours.

I don't know but let's start somewhere and narrow it down. It looks like you might be in the general vicinity of Long Plain?

You are getting closer John. It’s got a bit of height that hill.

The northern end of the park is severely underrated for bushwalking. So much open and rolling terrain to keep a person interested. Not to mention the history.

It certainly does appeal and I hope to return one day.
Nothing in the 2000 club around there but perhaps Mt Nungar at 1710m?

Got there, finally. I now have to do that walk since I've already researched it :).

Still NSW. Part of what feature is in the foreground?
