Is this in NSW? It looks a lot like Lake Salome in the Walls of Jerusalem.

You're in the general area but I'm quite a distance away from Twynam.
It's hard to see in the photo but there is a trig on this peak.

Not Tate is it? Has that shape about it but doesn't look quite right (and I can't be bothered digging up photos to compare)

It does look Tate-ish from this angle but no, I'm well south of both Tate and Twynam.

No, but that's very close, and my brain has now gone into lockdown and refuses to yield any further clues.
South Rams Head is not far behind me. I'm standing maybe halfway between it and the (unofficial) Southerly Rams Head up ahead.
Zoomed in you can see Townsend, Abbott et al in the distance. Over to you WFBW.
