There are more expansive views to be had but scrambling and rock hopping in the evening when solo would have been sheer folly

I could imagine similar views from Bushwalker but not Bushwalker I'm afraid. I was on the other side of the Clyde River.

Folly Point it is, next to the visitors book. Nice protected campsite for anyone interested. Take your bike if coming from Sassafras and then expect an overgrown track to the point.
Over to you johnw.

Now that yellow piant spot tells me this time it is on Bushwalker, looking up at the hill?

Correct puredingo. Probably a bit cheeky posting it straight after the last one :). All yours...

Should someone post something to move this game along?

I agree. Going by the rules anyone can post after 24 hours if the winner hasn't posted. I think giving some grace is OK, but it's been over 36 hrs and dingo may well be off walking somewhere. Anyone can go next...

Araps is in a state of excitement, especially over about grade 18. These days I may just be able to solo Alis. The next pic was taken in Victoria, and is of a Victorian place.

Thanks Lohophaps
I may have been the first to view it and I think its pretty well known, at least to Victorians.
Next. Where in Victoria was I on this very hazy day?

The haze does not assist. Looking at Lake Dartmouth?

Not it's not Dartmouth or Mt Benambra. Its actually a much less mountainous region than the areas suggested so far.

I had wondered if it was a sea inlet.
Next is still in Vic - a phone panorama - so click on it to enlarge.
