Mount Anne, Mount Eliza and the Eliza Plateau from Scotts Peak Dam Road
|Elevation||1,423 m (4,669 ft) AHD|
|Age of rock||Jurassic|
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. Several cavers have been killed trying to explore its depths.
Mount Anne was named by George Frankland after his wife, Georgina Anne in 1835. Henry Judd reached the Mount Anne Plateau from the Huon Valley in 1880. Walter Crookall and Geoff Chapman, members of the Hobart Walking Club found a way to the top on 25 December 1929. The long hike from Maydena or Huonville became a day walk after the construction of the Scotts Peak Dam Road in 1970.
