Wilsons Peak 1,230 m (4,040 ft) is a steep mountain in Queensland, Australia which is covered in dense rainforest. It marks the intersection of the Great Dividing Range with the McPherson Range in the Scenic Rim region. The Queensland and New South Wales border fence also leads up the middle of it.
The mountain was named by Captain Patrick Logan, the notoriously brutal commander of the Moreton Bay penal settlement, in honour of a colleague he served with at Moreton Bay. Local Aboriginals referred to the mountain as "Jirramen," which is Aboriginal for knee. This is derived from the fact that the shape of the top of the mountain bears some resemblance to a human knee.
