Mount Blaxland, New South Wales
Mount Blaxland, actually a hill, is located about 25 kilometres south of Lithgow at longitude -33.548500061, latitude 150.117904663. It was the furthest point reached by Blaxland, Lawson, and Wentworth on their historic 1813 crossing of the Blue Mountains.
The name was bestowed upon it by Surveyor-General George Evans when, later in 1813, Evans arrived at the terminal point of Blaxland's expedition. Two other smaller conical shaped hills on the opposite side of a nearby stream were named, by Evans, Wentworth's Sugar-Loaf and Lawson's Sugar-Loaf.
