How surprised was I ?

When I travelled to the other side of the world. To the other hemisphere no less, and found myself looking at something so familiar...yet something just didn't seem quite right...Hmmm.

  1. Bet there's no "threading the needle" on that Cobbler :-)

    Yip it is quite reminiscent of oor wee Ben Arthur. How does it compare height & terrain wise?

  2. Actually I'm being a bit economical with the truth Elaina. The hill (Granite Tor I believe) that looks so familiar is actually callled the hump or something like that. We both commented on it looking like the Cobbler back home then literally 2 mins later when I was having a look at the info board I spotted that. Mt Cobbler was actually one of the faraway ones way out on the horizon.

    Still it amused us for a while!

  4. If you ever get the chance you should visit the Aussie Mt Cobbler partly accessible via 4wd. As well as the Bluff, they are great parts of the Victorian Alpine country. While you are there you can also visit the Crosscut Saw and climb Mt Buggery. Great bivy country in the non winter months.

  5. Yeah, Louise and Plan to explore more of the hils in Victoria when we are over again. Mt Cobbler is on the must do list mainly because of the name but it's good to see it recomended.

    Dunno about Bivy country tho...I have a hard enough time dealing with the thought of the spiders there as it is!!
