Mount Wellington, Hobart Reviews
Wow what an amazing place. We were very lucky to be there on a clear day. We were told that on a good day you can see a third of Tasmania. The road up is pretty good although narrow and the council will close the road if there's ice. There's toilets at the top which I credible views. Also it's usually 10 degrees cooler at the top as compared to Hobart. There's plenty of exploration available at the top, and if you're a mountain biker, riding down the mountain is a lot of fun, but would recommend going on a tour for that to be safer when negotiating the road with other road users. There's also some single track mountain bike trails that the locals recommend.
If you’re in Hobart then this is a definite must. We went up in winter, just after they had reopened the summit road, and were rewarded with a stunning vista. It was bloody cold due to the wind so make sure you’re rugged up - a hat and gloves wouldn’t hurt either. Stop for a coffee on the way back down. Great place to visit.
Absolutely stunning view from the top. A must visit in Hobart! It's quite chilly up there. Dress accordingly, take lot of layers and be prepared for changing weather conditions. Wind will make things hard. Can be quite busy at the car park. We had to wait a while to find a parking spot. Sunset view was absolutely spectacular.
Be prepared for snow and dress accordingly. Wonderful place but can be extremely busy during school holidays. You're pretty much free to roam where you like, to the point you'd probably need evac. Bring some hiking shoes, your sneakers won't cut it. The rocks are sharp and slippery. There was almost no reception despite being next to a broadcasting tower, which can interfere with sensitive electrical equipment.
A beautiful drive with incredible views of Hobart. We also arrived when the mountain top was nearly covered in snow and it was amazing to see. It was so great we went a second time but unfortunately the road was closed due to the roads being too icy.
