Repeating image for new page.
NSW, name at least two features, or one feature and my location:

Mt Skanzi from Wombat Hill Lookout, Morton NP via Moss Vale NSW

Clue: A marsupial may occupy my perch.

Thanks, reminds me of when I was canoing down that way. So why not a canoe shot at a campsite you can walk to in NSW

That looks like a still from the latest TV beer ad :). Somewhere on Myall Lakes?

Yes, the sunset was a hint I was on the eastside of the lake, but still, did well to work that one out.

Thanks. Always some detective work needed if I haven't been there.
Viewing that relaxed scene the assumption was that you had paddled to a less crowded spot.
Used Gaia maps on my phone to try and work out the most remote campsites then looked for similar images.

This is a "where am I?" NSW:

On the border, not sure if it's more ACT than NSW - Mt Ginini?

Fair way from ginini or the ACT. The range on the horizon might be familiar if you zoom in. I'm literally a stone's throw from a named trig.

Thanks, never been there but a visit to Pretty Plain Hut is on the list. Speaking of huts, name the hut behind me, or the creek I'm overlooking, in NSW

Immediate thought was Wheelers, but there'd be a great big bogong in view wouldn't there?

You're right, standing in front of Wheelers. Jagungal would be off to my right.
