With an elevation of 1,756 metres (5,761 ft) above sea level,[1] Round Mountain is situated on a high point on the watershed between the Tumut River and Tooma River catchments. The summit is located close to the Khancoban-Cabramurra Road. A major fire trail running from the main road, makes Round Mountain a popular starting location for hiking and cross-country skiing expeditions.

Similar to other peaks in the area, it is covered by scrub on its lower slopes and in the more elevated areas it is clear and grassy.[1]

The other Round Mountain peaks are located at 36°32′S 148°25′E[3] and 36°14′S 148°34′E.[4]
