thanks for the reply Manning but you cant actually drive to the top of Mt Meharry , I am looking for the area of highest elevation within west aust that one can drive onto and im lead to believe that this area is very near the CSR

Mt Davis 669 metres - north of well 6
1.8 km from track on western side

Mt Salvo two peaks 732 metres and 670 metres - south of well 6
3.0 km from track on western side and the second peak is 3.4 km west of the first peak.

If you ever get the chance to go to Mt Methwin in spring it is just awesome. You would want to spend at least a week to ten days there taking in the surrounding waterholes and springs which are within 6 km from Mt Methwin
