The Hazards are a rugged mountain chain in the Freycinet National Park on Tasmania's east coast. They are positioned between Coles Bay, Tasmania and Wineglass Bay and are said to be named after local whaler, African-American Captain Richard Hazard. [1]

The Hazards are made of granite. Orthoclase, a pink feldspar, gives the mountains their pink tint.[1] Amos and Dove are two of the more well known mountains, with the track to the Wineglass Bay beach and lookout, lying besides Mount Amos.
