Mount Worsnop is a flat, table top mesa situated in the Sutherland Ranges of Western Australia. The remote Hunt Oil Road passes within a kilometre of the mount as it winds its way past Lake Gillen and heads north to Mount Allot. The mount provides an excellent view of the surrounding ranges and countryside. Several Kilometres to the north are the remains of the Hunt Oil Camp in the lee of Mt Allot as well as the Alexander Spring, a semi permanent water hole that saved the life of explorer Alexander Forrest, and his brothers expedition in 1874. Wildlife and in particular camels, are abundant in the surrounding country.

July 15th, 1974. Rested at Alexander Spring. Went for a walk to a flat-topped hill about South-South-East 50 chains from camp, which I have since named Mount Allott, and placed a cairn on it; another hill close by I named Mount Worsnop, after respectively the Mayor and Town Clerk of Adelaide.
