Spicer's Peak (1205m)in in the Main Range South West of Brisbane which is part of the great dividing range and great escarpment. The peak lies in the Main Range National Park part of the Gondwana Rainforests World Heritage area. The peak lies South of Cunningham's Gap and the Cunningham Highway
There is a difficult and dangerous scrambling route from the Eastern side following the main ridge from Governor's Chair and Spicer's Gap Road, however an easier route is from the West which is most easily accessed through private property (Pepper's Spicer's Peak Resort). Mt Mitchell and Mt Mathieson are the nearest peaks.
On the slopes of the peak grows eucalypt forest and woodland including Yellow Box Eucalyptus melliodora, Stringy Bark E. eugenioides, Mountain Grey Gum E. biturbinata and the Threatened Dunn's White Gum E. dunnii in more sheltered moister slopes and gullies. There are also spectacular large and old Grass Trees Xanthorrhoea glauca which are a feature of this vegetation.
