List Description

Sometimes called the "Aussie Eight", this list most often omits the high point of the Jervis Bay Territory. However, research on the legal status of Jervis Bay seems to lead to the inescapable conclusion that this coastal encalve is not technically part of the Australian Capital Territory or of New South Wales, and therefore is a territory of Australia of equal status with the other eight states and territories.

This list does not include the external territories of Australia--this site considers them to be separate dependencies owned by Australia but not part of it. See The List of Countries in the World for more information on this topic. If all Australian dependencies were included with the mainland, then Mawson Peak on Big Ben on Heard Island would be the country high point.

The nine summits on this list are not much of a mountaineering challenge. The most difficult is probably Mount Ossa, which requires some scrambling on a rough trail and a several-day journey on the Overland Track. Many other peaks here are very remote, but present no technical climbing issues.
