Mount Manypeaks is a distinctive peak located approximately 35 kilometres (22 mi) north-east of Albany, 10 kilometres (6 mi) north-east of Two Peoples Bay and 6 km south-east of the town of Manypeaks in the City of Albany local government area.1
The mountain is the dominant feature in the area and was named by Captain Matthew Flinders in January 1802 whilst surveying the south coast region in the “Investigator”. Flinders noted in his journal “There are a number of small peaks upon the top of this ridge, which induced me to give it the name Mount Manypeak”. The plural form has now become the accepted form of spelling.2
The Mount Manypeaks formation has a total length of 22 kilometres (14 mi) and has a width of 3 kilometres (2 mi). The ridge is made up primarily of a type of granite, proterozoic porphyritic biotite granite as well as adamellite. In places the granite block is overlaid limestone.3
