From Jacks Pass, follow an unmarked track westward, away from Mount Isobel. Continue on the rising spur, and ignore the track that turns off down to Chatterton River. Eventually the spur climbs onto a ridge with a relatively flat top. Dunblane is the peak off to the left. 

If you want to continue on, the hills out west are all public land: Hanmer Forest Park and Molesworth Reserve. Mount Charon (1542m) is a full day trip. Further on, Miromiro is the highest spot in Hanmer Forest Park at 1875m. It is a 2-3 day journey.
