Not long ago, there would have been thousands of rabbit burrows hereabouts. Well, at least 1066.

A non-cryptic clue: this is in the Vulkathunha / Gammon Ranges NP.

My maps suggest Benbonyathe Hill is at 1064m.
I think it is the highest in the area, so not sure about your 1066?

But your other clue suggests Mt Warren-Hastings, and the view would fit it better.
PS - [duh - should learn more history...]

Well done, eggs. Yes, the view is a reasonable clue. Lake Frome on the eastern horizon, Mt Chambers to the south.

Thanks Mountain madness

This one is in NSW. Should be fairly easy for those who have walked in the area.
Im looking for the name of the hill in the right of the shot.

Thanks Wildwanderer. Seeing as we are in that neck of the woods, NSW. What is the name of the rock in the centre left of this photo?

^ Interesting. The east is the better view. Only seen it from the western side. And I posted a photo of it way back in this game. Not saying I have guessed right though.:)

Here's the face, cropped from a photo by Tom Brennan which appears on this page (where there is also a close-up photo from the west showing the "Darth Vader" profile).

It does look a lot more like a profile from the east.

Back to the game. Where in NSW was I last Sunday. Here's a clue:

Spot on. What a great spot and it was surprisingly easy to follow the track out there. Over to you Tyreless.
