Mount Tate is a prominent rocky mountain on the Main Range of the Snowy Mountains located in southeastern New South Wales, Australia.

With an elevation of 2,068 metres (6,785 ft) above sea level,[1] Mount Tate has two ridges running north and south, perversely named Tate West Ridge and Tate East Ridge, referring to the side of the Great Divide where they lie. It has spectacular views back along the Main Range towards Mount Twynam and down to the Geehi Valley.[5]

The mountain is situated approximately 3 kilometres (1.9 mi) northeast of Guthega and southwest of Guthega Power Station.[3]
