Couldn't add any text to the post for some reason. user error in my case!! 1st pic is Bicheno and 2nd is view from Lake Pedder Lodge

Do some text first, then attach the pic. The pic will display in full size...and scroll the previous inserted text out of sight.
The cursor will slip down to the bottom RH corner of the displayed pic....hit enter for more text or the next pic.

Now attached pics will go exactly where the cursor is....caught me out a few times (still does sometimes).

Can anyone pick the corner?

:)

I wonder if that gravel track is open again, been gated off for years.
Bloody steep at the start, then tops out at a tiny turnaround area with unbelievable ~340deg views (Mt. Roland is knocking out the rest).

The main road corner is also known as "The Abseiler" or "eff-off-corner". ;-)

bummer.
Not that too many would go up there, that track ran right on top of the lip of that old quarry until it veered into the bush at the ridge.
The views were just outstanding. from up there.

Took me a while to find these, and I think it's the same corner.
There was a comment about a track (closed or open, or something), where the red car is in Marty's pic. It's just out of view (to the right) in my second pic..


Sure is the same corner :)
Yo, track to the right up that old quarry.

Some of the best views across north-western Tassie from that carpark....even more stunning from that tiny parking area (about 3 bikes worth) up the top of the gravel track.
Views right up to the coast, into the Tarkine and across to Cradle Mtn. from there.

There were also some pics (in this thread - https://austouring.com/index.php?threads/half-day-northern-tassie-loop.5480/page-4) I took of the XT600 at this location. The pic links are busted, and I can't find the originals, pity as I thought they were pretty good.

Just tried to play around with the pic links, but photobucket seems to have changed something. Or even ditched them.
Weren't they going to delete the old accounts after the "grace-period" to make folks sign up for paid hosting?
