Peaks of Australia

Australia is a relatively flat continent, with its highest peak reaching an elevation of 2228 m above sea level. That said, there are still plenty of opportunities to practise mountaineering and rock climbing.

In the following, I have assembled a list of all the major peaks in Australia, ordered by the state. I give a short description, a photo or two and the official elevation and location. Besides, I provide the coordinates and altitude that I measured using a GPS device when climbing the peak.
