Mount Roland

Mount Roland stands at 1234 meters above sea level on the northern edge of the Great Western Tiers region of Tasmania. It provides an impressive backdrop to the Kentish Municipality and for the town of Sheffield.  At first sight, Mount Roland would appear to be a difficult climb. From most angles it appears that the Mountain is just a collection of seemingly impregnable cliffs. These cliffs form the containment walls of a huge dolerite plateau of which the summit tor is but a small part. Most of the time spent climbing Roland is on level or gentle ground, so to reach the summit is not only rewarding but not as difficult as it first may seem. Like anywhere in Tasmania, the level of difficulty and discomfort can be directly attributed to the weather and a walker’s level of preparedness.
