Yep, from a little above and beyond Jones Pass, looking back over the way I came.

So you came down through that thick scrub??

A bit different.
This is near the start of a tourist walk - but looks very different from this photo from 1983.

you are looking up the Hercules Haulage from Williamsford. It looks fairly intact then, was it still in operation? I first saw it about 5 years later, it was stripped then from memory.

That shot doesn't really show the route across, which is a bit further west. It's not as bad as it looks from a distance, except the area immediately around the creek.

Yes Last.
A fantastic gravity fed system - that still had its cars in place when I first saw it.
So a gravity fed rail car fed into a gravity fed aerial bucket system for a completely motor free transport system!!
Not sure if it was still "operational" - but it could still function at the time.

No tracks, cables or cars left now.

Gatesy can go next - he was right about Mt Kate - which was the hint I needed.

Wylly Plateau was closer. I feel as if I should give it to you Graham, it's on top of Mt Wylly. You were real close I probably was a bit harsh on not giving it the first time. Over to you

Actually you're all right because we walked The Triple Top (without actually summiting any of them) in answering the first question but this photo is from the base of Mount van Dyke.
