  • Breathless! What an amazing view over Hobart. We were very lucky in the fact that it was clear when we went up. The tour guide from the tourist information, Greg, was very knowledgeable about the history of Hobart as well as helping us out for the remainder of Tasmania. Highly recommend the tour.

  • Amazing views here at Mt Wellington. The lookout is one of the highest points to see the whole city, oceans and horizon. Lots of tracks to walk along and see. There is The Pinnacle, which is an indoor viewing gallery. Lots of photo opportunities, easy parking and public restroom. well worth the drive. It can get very chilli and windy here to bring some extra clothes just in case. Not open at night so make sure you visit during the hours of operation.

  • Awe inspiring natural feature of Hobart! Outstanding view of the city, harbour and beautiful surrounding countryside. Popular cafe halfway up the climb, excellent tavern near the turnoff, only a few minutes drive outside the city, highly recommended!

  • got to say hi to some high wallabies on the very top of the mountain at dusk. also had to watch out for brush tail possums crossing the road. unfortunately there was burning off below causing the view and clean air to be less than ideal. but it's definitely an interesting place.

  • 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.
