That's unexpected.

On this this in Victoria I didn't walk, but rather paddled.

This river is a fraction of the size of the Mighty Murray, it also is not a cross-state river.

Not a River, and also flows into another state.
Go south!

Not near mount beauty.
The West Kiewa is good paddling, but the water in this river does not flow into NSW.

I was not on the Yarra, though this river is also dammed for Melbourne's drinking water!

Thanks icefest, I visited there on a bikepacking trip to Lakes Entrance after hot ride along Cowwarr Road from Rawson then joined the rail trail to Stratford. Next Victoria. What track was I on...

Not near Speculation or Cobbler. This photo is 7 years ago so the fire damage is not recent.

NE of Skene icefest and south of Bogong. It's a pretty popular track.

Close enough puredingo. Roughly half way across the Razorback looking back towards the Bon Accord with what I think are The Twins in the background. All yours.

Still no takers, hey?

This mountain lays at the most Southern boundary of this popular NSW national Park. Back in the day one could drive stock past it.

... and these days you drive past it? Based (solely) on the clues I'd say Mt. Shivering, maybe from around Bindook somewhere?

Yeah Mt Shivering it is. Not taken from Bindook but a ridge more S/W of there.

Off you go FatBoy.
