The World List of Natural Sites of Tourist Attraction
Mount Giluwe is the second highest mountain in Papua New Guinea at 4,367 metres (Mount Wilhelm being the highest). It is located in the Southern Highlands province and is an old shield volcano with vast alpine grasslands. Ancient volcanic plugs form its two summits, with the central peak the highest and an east peak about 2 kilometres away at 4,300 m. Giluwe has the distinction of being the highest volcano on the Australian continent and Oceania, and is thus one of the Volcanic Seven Summits.
