Not Erskine Creek, much more water can go through here. Need to go maybe 700 metres or more higher.

Wentworth Falls?
Men wanted for hazardous journey. Low wages, bitter cold, long hours of complete darkness. Safe return doubtful.

Yes, some years ago on the now closed National Pass (due to a rockfall fatality).
Although this section may still be open, not sure.

I was intrigued by the fall into the gorge on the left.
I had seen photos of the Mitchell River Falls before - but I had not noticed the other one before.

Lets try for a name of this range in SA?

Flinders Ranges cover about 1000km, so I need a little more refinement.
I could see the Heysen Range from near here, but this is not it.
Hint - the highest spot in view is the highest point in the Flinders you can drive a 4WD.

Yes - this is the Bunkers from Willow Springs area.
Mt Caernarvon is the highest peak in that range.

Thank you Zapruda. Embarrassed I still haven't visited any ACT peaks, took some researching of Johnny Boy's blog.

Similar concept. What are we on in NSW?

I recognised Geehi but it took some time to line things up right!

I'm still in NSW:

That is Mount Youngal!

I'm not on Townsend or Carruthers though.

I'll give it to you though, as I am looking at Townsend from the summit to the East of it.
