Thanks to Reg King for adding this peak.
The highest mountain in Queensland, Australia. It's about 50km south of Cairns and climbing it is more of a challenging bush walk than a mountain climb. Listing the mountain here is more for completeness of information about Australia's highest peak than mountain climbing challenges. There appear to be 2 different appraoches to climbing Bartle Frere. One is a 15km, 1 to 2 day bush walk accessed from Butcher's Creek near Atherton, the other a 6km walk from Josephine Falls near Babinda.
Web searches using the phrase Bartle Frere and mount or mt will return lots of information about getting to the summit.
