Lets try this one from SA
There is one prominent named peak in view - and a lesser.
I am after a rough location.

Bryan is south from here and Arden is a long way north.

Ah, a long time back by the look of it. I think you are looking toward (a distant) Mt Remarkable maybe from around Horrocks Pass?

Close enough - though completely the wrong direction.
Mt Remarkable is south and this is looking north.
Mt Horrocks is over on the left - and Mt Brown is rising at the back
This is from the Heysen Trail

In memory of explorer John Horrocks who shot himself alighting from his camel.

Jeez eggs, thanks but not sure I deserve it based on that abysmal performance. I now suspect a similar image I found may have been mislabeled.

Anyway here is one from my limited range from Victoria. Where am I trying to tell the time (hope I can remember):

Some popular short day hikes around here among other things of interest. From here we had a pleasant trudge through shin deep snow for several kms to a nice lookout point.There are some well known major features not too far from this spot.

Not Baw Baw Neil. Head north, google maps is saying it's a 6 hour drive from Mt Baw Baw village to here, but not in a straight line.

OK come to think of it.......the type of terrain matches Mount Buffalo more closely but I have no idea which bit.

That's the general location, need the name of the track or a nearby feature.

The clue suggests Og, Gog & Magog and the lookout is probably Eagle Point, but the exactly location is a little difficult

Not that one eggs but you are quite close. There is a linking track between that and where I'm headed.

I don't know if that is the actual name of the track but yes, heading for Macs Point.
The photo location is not too far from the Cathedral, which you can see from here. Your turn.

Thanks Tyreless.

This one is in NSW. Someone posted a track to Wikiloc, and I was struck by the beauty of its altitude graph. This is a well-known walk that can be done in one day or overnight. Many people on this forum have done this walk.

There are lots of good clues in this graph. See if you can guess where it is.
