Mount Wellington, Hobart Reviews - Write a Review
Incredible view! Lots of walking trail options. Tracks are in a good repair. Roads are a bit narrow so takes some common sense and courtesy when driving up and down. Handy cafe “Lost Freight” about halfway up.
There is only one way to describe Mount Wellington: what a view!! Well worth driving (or hiking if you are fit) up there (over 1000m above sea level)... Beware that the wind makes it a very cold place, even in the summer!
We were expecting a good lookout, but we were shocked at just how how high up we were. It felt like looking at the city from an airplane, and the rocks and boulders looked like the surface of the moon. Even though we went on a hazy day, the views were remarkable. There are several lookout platforms and all are worth checking out. This is a really unique experience and a must-do in Hobart.
Great view, however the drive up is precarious, we had a car speeding up on our way down and hit our side mirror. So take it easy the view will be still there.
This place is spectacular- a must-visit if you're in Hobart. The views on the drive up/down were incredible and it was amazing once you cross the snowline...and then the road just keeps climbing and climbing. Make sure you dress warmly!
