Rebecca Lagoon? Fairly sure I've stood in the same spot, but the brain carks it when trying to remember which puddle is which.

It's unnamed (on the map). I think you're about 10k away as the forest raven flies

Can't believe I said Rebecca Lagoon when I meant Lake Loretta. This is what happens when you try to have a caffeine-free day. But still probably not what you're after, although it is about 10km straight from Sappho.
Maybe one of the unnamed constituents of the Orion Lakes?

St Clair Lagoon, or even Derwent Basin, near the weir?

wrong direction. Not part of a large lake. You've tried north, south and east.

You seem to be suggesting a unnamed lake about 600m west of Hermione in the Cheyne Range

That *&%$#! thing! Went past it on the second Cheyne circuit. Thought about camping there but it was too early in the day.

Yes, I did the same thing. Camped at Lake Hermione, passed it at 8 in the morning

Eldon Peak back right, Sorell in the middle and I'm guessing Darwin in front of it?

edit: no, that's Huxley in front of Owen, you daft git. Presumably from somewhere on Jukes.

Thank you. What on earth made the brain imagine even for a second that you could get Darwin in front of Sorell and Eldon Peak?

Next one.

Indeed. Somewhere along the road. Started and ended in fog, but it did clear out on top for a couple of hours. Lovely winter walking.

You're on the money, Rexy! Thought I'd stick with a theme. Stunning day it was.

Cheers mate! I abseiled off one of those cliffs with the late Bob McMahon about 20 years ago. Thought I was smiling for the photo. Turns out I wasn’t.

Next pic...
