All your Lops. It's the west Peak taken from Tawonga South on a day with very interesting weather.

Wow, the picture is nothing like my recollection. I only got it due to your east comment and eliminating everything that it could not be. It looks a bit like a reverse Staircase. NSW.

I had a feeling you would recognise the area, NNW. You are close. Not the Chimneys or Mt Terrible.

Looking at Paddys from there, yeah, that makes sense. It's a great little walk there, from the carpark along the ridge to Drift.

Bingo!

The whole area gets so little traffic. It’s confusing considering it’s proximity to Thredbo. The walking is easy and enjoyable. Lots of deer and horses up there, sadly.

Over to you.

I only bothered with the river route once. After that it was always along the ridges. Never seen any trace of anyone up there (apart from Teddys Hut).

Moving to Victoria. Name the fall.

Not sure if this track still exists. There are more famous falls in the same NP.

That's the one, Micky. Do you know if the track is still there? 'Twas a bit rough when I did it, but that was due to regrowth after fires.

These falls are located in the northeast. There are two waterfalls close to each other. This is the upper falls.
