Mount Anne, Tasmania

Mount Anne

Mount Anne is a mountain in the Southwest National Park in Tasmania, Australia. It is within the UNESCO World Heritage listed Tasmanian Wilderness.

Mount Anne is the nineteenth highest mountain in Tasmania, but the highest in south-west Tasmania, adding to its appearance of prominence. It dominates the area surrounding Lake Pedder.

Although a primarily dolerite structure, it has a large sub-structure of dolomite, which contains an extensive cave system. This system includes the famous 'Anna-a-Kananda' cave - one of the deepest caves in Australia.

Mount Anne has a superb region of ancient Gondwanan type vegetation on its north-east ridge, some of which are amongst the oldest surviving plant species on the planet.
