Mount Arthur is a mountain in the northern region of Tasmania, Australia. With an elevation of 1,188 metres (3,898 ft) above sea level,[1] the mountain is located 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.

In addition to this peak, there are two further minor peaks in Tasmania, also called Mount Arthur. One is located near Port Arthur;[3] and the other is located near Hobart.[4]
