Yesterday set off from the Chapel at 8am for a trip in them thar hills, Went via Tyers, Rawson and Thompson Dam, Turned right at the end of the Bitumen and went down to Aberfeldy Camping ground, brand new concrete bridge in service, here are some pics of the area now.

In closing Royal Standard track is not a track you would do on your own. Very steep and rutted.
