Mount Sedgwick is a mountain located within the West Coast Range, West Coast Tasmania. It lies in line behind Mount Lyell in views from high points in Queenstown and from the roads leading out to Strahan and Zeehan. Bands of the pink and grey coloured conglomerate show strikingly on its south west slopes. Its western and south western slopes are significantly more precipitous and rocky, compared to the once heavily forested southern and south eastern slopes.
The top of Mount Sedgwick is columnar jointed Jurassic Dolerite interpreted as a remnant of a dolerite sheet (The lack of a strong magnetic signature suggests it is not a plug) that intrudes Permian tillite, which is exposed on the South East flank of the Mountain. 
Mount Sedgwick is effectively the source of the Lake Margaret water - with smaller named lakes above Lake Margaret as feeders.
