Frenchman Peak

Alexander Forrest named the distinctive Frenchman Peak in 1870 during a six month trek along the edge of the Great Australian Bright, under the command of his brother John.

It is sometimes referred to as ‘Beau Chapeau’, French for ‘man’s hat’.

The aboriginal name is ‘Mandoobureup’.


The reports of the various trips, tours and travels on the Adventures website have a lot of information about place names – their naming and features – toponymy. More information.
