Does anyone know where the track leaves from Olive Lagoon to Mary Tarn Lake?

I wasn't aware there was a track.
About four years ago I went from Layatinna over Doughboys to Mikany. There are a lot of open leads and animal pads over it, heading in various directions. It's pretty easy walking. From the open ground near the northern end of Olive Lagoon I would head west to the open patches of ground around the creek that drains from the saddle between Layatinna and Doughboy and then follow the obvious leads over the saddle and down. You don't really need a track.

If you go to the very top of Olive Lagoon and just before you come to Lake Olive, the track leaves from there. I walked it twice last year and it's pretty clearly marked once you find the cairns where it starts. There are some cairns on logs behind the bushes 50 0r so metres from the lakes. I might be able to find a GPS reading if you want it.
Do you know that you need to get permission from the Aboriginal Centre to use the road up from Gowan Brae? It costs $20 per party for the p0ass and you can walk or ride a bike. Let me know if you want more information. I also have GPS cords for other features you may be interested in.
