List Description

There are a number of lists that show the highest peaks in Australia, often with a cutoff after the ten highest. This list, however, was modeled after the many worldwide threshold lists that use a round-number elevation cutoff. Here, 2000 meters is a very nice round number that provides a list of 15 summits that crown the Australian continent.

A prominence cutoff of 60 meters was chosen because a) it seemed about right for this list, and b) the 1:50,000 contour maps of the area have 20 meter contours, so it made sense to use a multiple of 20. Sixty meters is about 200 feet, which is similar to prominence cutoffs used for lists covering similar terrain in the eastern USA.

The peaks on this list are all relatively easy hikes or scrambles, and it is entirely possible to do several of these peaks in a single day. They are all clustered closely together in or near the Snowy Mountains.
