State 8

Climbing the Highest Peak in each Australian State & Territory

Australia might not be renowned for her towering mountains and death defying peaks, however given the vast size of Australia and the wide range of climates and geography, climbing the highest mountain or peak in each of Australia's eight State and Territories is quite an achievement in itself.

After climbing my first (and most often climbed) peak, Mount Kosciuszko I decided I would try and climb each of the State highpoints. I then realised there was little information on the where, how and what was required to climb each highpoint.

I hadn't yet quite understood the why, however I decided to create this site for those who also hadn't quite worked out the why but still wanted to climb.

Whether you're climbing the rainforest covered Bartle Frere, the Alpine peaks of the East Coast or the desert mountains of the inner and western parts of Australia, this website is for you.

You can track the progress of your climbs on the climbers page and for those of you who are crazy enough to actually climb every State/Territory Highpoint there is an exclusive patch to forever mark your success.


Good Luck!
