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, and generally forms the divide between the Hunter River and Manning River drainage basins (both of which drain to the east coast of New South Wales).
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.
