Close enough.... the valley in view is actually the unnamed creek that starlights parallels down to the river. Was being a bit of a sm@rt@r$e as this was taken from the Ahearns lookout track just as you climb up onto Ahearn head itself, probably only about 300m east of the first (northernmost) lookout on the head and maybe 600 or so metres from where the previous photo was taken.

General locale looked familiar, reminds me that I haven't been there for ages.

Looks like you are on Big Bogong / Mt J, on the footpad looking toward the headwaters of the Tumut.

Thank you Wildwanderer.

Still in NSW. A general location is fine for this one.

Oops. I wasn't prepared for that to be right...

This should be easy - still in Dubberland, name the peak in view.
