The Sisters Mountains are located in the northeast corner of Australia, just south of Townsville and Elliot Springs. The Sisters Mountains actually consist of three peaks, including the East Sister (422 m), Middle Sister (429 m), and West Sister (425 m). The three sisters and the main ridgeline that runs between them make up the isolated range and provide some of the best views across Townsville. Take the day to summit all three peaks, and enjoy the different views and vegetation each has to offer. See also, Slippery Rocks Creek.
