Is this Mt Anne? From the Scotts Peak Rd where you head off to Sandfly Creek?

Dora point?

Edit: I think I was just following clues and not even looking at picture... I don’t remember there being a big point sticking out along the coastline there.

This is well south of Dora Point but on the same side of Tasmania. It is a sunset so I'm looking west.
Just to help with the clues - Anthony was a governor somewhere, but who was talking to him? And Diego spent a lot of time here and left a lot of historical interest.

Well the clue points to Diego Bernacchi, so Maria Island. Bernacchi Creek comes out at Darlington Bay, and he named Darlington San Diego, so I'll guess that this is Darlington Bay, and you are looking at the Three Thumbs?

That's pretty much it. It's called Maria Island after Maria van Diemen, Anthony van Diemen's wife.

Pazzar seems to have been taken by aliens. Does anyone else know if Thetis is correct? Should we just move on?

Yep, looks spot on to me, compared with my very poor quality cropped shot (edit: oops) Achilles from Thetis. Pazz is nearly 24 hrs awol anyway, so I say go for it, Last.

I think Tortoise may have meant Achilles rather than Paddys Nut - but the visuals are right.


PS - the last one might be from Ragged Jack?

Storys Bluff and Sphinx Bluff from roughly Denison Crag?
That looks like a pad.
