Thanks Graham, my research was almost misdirected by something named Goats Lookout.

Why is the trig on a lower point - how hard was the climb?

Definitely Heemskirk. The trig must be where it is for convenience, the summit is about 9 m higher. This pic is not from the highest point but from the old stone surveyors cairn built by surveyor Sprent. It was a fairly easy offtrack walk from the Heemskirk road initially following an old 4wd track. It's possible the scrub has grown since then, this was 15 years ago.

Lake Newdegate from near the hut?

No guesses yet.
Some clues:
This beach is in a national park. There is an island in this photo.

Indeed.

Seems that on some maps this is marked as Butler's Beach.

Your go.
