The Mount Royal Range is a mountain range in the Hunter region of New South Wales, Australia.
The Mount Royal Range is a spur on the eastern side of the Great Dividing Range. It diverges from the Liverpool Range at a point north of Scone, New South Wales, near Ben Halls Gap. The range generally extends to the southeast for about 45 kilometres (28 mi) and then generally to the south southwest for about 50 kilometres (31 mi) to Mount Royal. The range generally forms the divide between the Hunter River and Manning River drainage basins, both of which drain to the Tasman Sea.
The range contains a number of prominent peaks including:
The range is named after Mount Royal, one of its prominent peaks.
To provide water for the Bayswater Power Station, the Barnard River Scheme was constructed in the 1980s so water could be transported over the range into the Hunter River.
The Mount Royal range forms the northern rim of the Hunter Region. The Barrington Tops, an elevated plateau at the headwaters of the Barrington River, are part of the Mount Royal Range. The World Heritage listed Barrington Tops National Park includes this area.
