To the far north, near the border with New South Wales, is Mt Cobberas (1,833 metres above sea level) - the highest peak in the region. The Bowen mountains adjoin Mt Cobberas where Mt Tambo (1,432 m asl) lies just to the north of the intersection between the Tambo and Timbarra Rivers. Other peaks above 1,000 m are all within the northern part of the region and include Mt Baldhead (1,377 m asl), Mt Bowen (1,250 m asl), Mt Ellery (1,291 m asl) and Mt Kaye (1,001 m asl). Major peaks in the south of the region include Mt Elizabeth (942 m asl), Mt Tara (607 m asl), Mt McLeod (579 asl), Mt Cann (530 m asl) and Mt Buckle near the Murray River at 456 m asl (Duncan, 1982).
This Elevation map provides a broadscale overview of the relief across the region. It was created from the DEM250 dataset in the DPI Corporate Geospatial Data Library which was derived from an AUSLIG Digital Elevation Model of spot heights from 1:100 000 mapsheets and interpolated into a 500 metre cell size grid.
