The mountain is Barn Bluff, located in the Cradle Mountain-Lake St Clair National Park in the Central Highlands of Tasmania. Barn Bluff is 1,559 metres (5,115 ft) , 4th tallest in Tasmania.

Currawong were to be a companion for the next six days.

Got some very good advice, keep food secure, deep in the main compartment of pack. These are quite clever birds, and have been known to open zippers on a pack.

Boronia citriodora
Rutaceae family

This was a new plant for me, I was to see it often during the walk.

www.utas.edu.au/docs/plant_science/field_botany/species/d...

This plant is growing in a subalpine sclerophyll woodland

Sclerophyll is a type of vegetation that has hard leaves and short internodes (the distance between leaves along the stem). The word comes from the Greek sclero (hard) and phyllon (leaf).
