Are you somewhere on the north-eastern part of the central plateau?

Everyone is still a long way away. Clear Hill is the closest (geographically), but it's not even in the right NP.

Only thing I can think of would be a re-routed track in a popular place, like the Loddon area. The track up Philps Lead could possibly step-like. But not colourful. Unless Philps was a communist.

Not so much a rerouted track as one that is officially closed.

Yes. Yes! YESSSSSS!!!! At last. As simple as that - climbing up the old Golden Stairs track to the Mawson plateau and cunningly framing the shot so that no really obvious giveaways were in it (except for Seagers).

Thank you Last, you may continue with my blessing.

Thanks NNW, another cunning pic. This one isn't, shouldn't trouble anyone too much. A limited range on the work computer.

83 views and no guesses. The highest peak on the horizon has a distinctive profile, shouldn't be hard to recognise. The one on the far left is well known too.

Looks like Frenchmans at the back, with maybe Eldon Peak to the left. If so, could be on anything from Murchison to Lyell.

Thanks Last. Sorry NNW. I love Murchison. It will always be one of my favourite mountains.

That's right Tortoise. It is on route to Lake Sydney where at the top of a small knoll the track emerges for a few steps from dense forest with views to Federation Peak.

There are some very well known mountains there, albeit from a less common angle.
