The first shot looks like you are walking from the Great Dome around and down to Lake Rhona and the second shot looks like the morraine down the Rasselas Track to the Vale of Rasselas.

Thanks Eggs,
What interesting feature was I at here?

EDIT: Sorry about the picture being sideways, no idea why it did that. Click on the picture if you want to see it rotated properly

I took an almost identical shot years ago. Split Rock in Meander Forest Reserve on the track to Shower Falls, Split Rock Falls etc.

Thanks Caedo. I don't have any photos with me, if anyone wants to jump in please feel free. If not I'll put one up this evening.

Hmmmm, looking towards bruny island and the channel from somewhere on the Wellington falls track? That stretch of track between the potato fields and snake plains turnoff?

Yes, you obviously know that track well L_Cham_67. I've only walked it once but that's pretty much spot on. On my way to Wellington Falls via Disappearing Tarn. I ended up doing a circuit via the Snake Plains track.

I've probably only walked it myself 2 or 3 times, but I do recognise that area of land where Snake Plains is located.

No guesses? This place hosts the longest continuously running off road race in Australia every November.

Peron Dunes it is :)
I think that competition is called the Tasmanian Sand Enduro, and we didn't realise it was on until we saw the porta-loos & flags and course markers...
