I'm beginning to think they might be a raptor as the 4th toe is segmented: here are some eagle tracks.... what do you think?

I'm sure there must be sea eagles down there.

Geez, that's it. I'm happy with that; you've solved it I reckon. Yes, we have wedgies and sea eagles. Do you know what tracks they are? Wedgy or sea eagle? Apparently Tassie sea eagles are a bit smaller than those on the mainland. Sea eagle then; I found another picture of white breasted sea eagle tracks, and they look the same as your picture and mine. Well done Thrud :).

It's a good place for sea eagles because they can handle high winds when other birds can't; it makes for easy meals.

Top of the class MDU.

Didn't give you the context before, but the height of the sign can provide useful clues when tracking

Thanks Hairyman I think prob more than 3 years old, missing a canine on bottom jaw. Not too much wear on the other teeth. Upper left canine had some fracturing. I know that dentition is one of the most accurate ways to age a fox and have seen some pics, so this age is only a very amateur estimate.

Love your work Aussie123!

My original clue was, Old man, face the music (3)!

I can see I'll have to get sneakier.
