What is an Abel?

10 Diamonds Barn Bluff"The Abels" are a creation of Bill Wilkinson as a way of classifying Tasmanian peaks. To qualify as an "Abel" a high point must satisfy two criteria:
- be at least 1100m high
- have a minimum drop of 150m on all sides

There are 158 peaks that meet this definition, which are spread across the three decks of PlayAbels.

Accessing and exploring the mountains is always a matter of respecting land management, both public and private. There are many books and blogs to help figure out the best approaches, while being mindful that your safety is your own responsibility. There is much joy to be found in wandering around the bush. May we all show the thoughtfulness required to continue to have the freedom to get out there and have a go.
