Careys Peak is a peak in William‘s Range, which are part of the Mount Royal Range, located in Barrington Tops National Park, Australia. At 1,544 meters above sea level, it is one of the higher points in the park, 200 kilometers north of Sydney. The peak can be found near the edge of the Barrington Tops plateau, within the declared wilderness of World Heritage Gondwana Rainforests of Australia. Wilderness streams such as the Allyn River and Williams River rise nearby. It‘s possible to see higher peaks of the Blue Mountains on a clear day. Looking south east, it would be possible to see the sands of Stockton Beach on the coast. The scenic appeal is well regarded. Particularly for its large stands of rainforest and snow gum wilderness. Carey‘s Peak is popular among camping and bushwalking destinations. Years ago, the area was a skiing slope. It has since been covered under natural bush regrowth.
