For Photo 2 - pretty sure that is the SW corner of Lake Payanna with the Mts of Jupiter behind.

That small tarn, I think this is the same one from a different side

That's lovely walking through there.

Its within 200m of it NNW.
You are at 449383E, 5375906N - it was south and a bit east of there at 449450E, 5375656N.
The LIST using State Aerial Photo is amazingly detailed.
We were about 400m wide of it, but I have the back end of your tarn in a photo of mine.

There does not seem to much change in the vegetation since then. Indeed, exceptionally nice country.

Lexie's still way north where the going's higher, less scrubby but more exposed.

It seems that from there they went south to Denton near Naomi and then west to Lakes 1134/Courier (named for the Launceston mag?), Payanna and Laura : " Rounding the shoulder of 'an unnamed mountain' (now Mt Spurling), they scrambled down the Traveller Range to camp at Lake Laura ... "

Exploring from Narcissus, down Cuvier to Cynthia Bay and 20 km's km's off east to possibly the present "Ruins" at Bronte, on the 1/25k Bronte map. Then north to Warner's Track. There's a Pearce's Creek flowing into the Dee Lagoon.
Nature is never spent.
