Mount Arthur is a mountain in the north of Tasmania. It is north-east of Launceston, near the town of Lilydale. Due to its close proximity to Launceston its summit is home to a large number of radio towers. WayFM (105.3 and 98.1), Launceston, and Northern Tasmania's Christian community radio station, have their tower on Mount Arthur. It is also a popular destination for hikers.
