Mount Wellington, Hobart Reviews

  • What a fantastic view. If you see the clouds clear, head up straight away. Take warm clothes and rain jackets, for the winds as well as rain or cloud. The drive up is narrow in parts with lots of turns but easily done in a car. We took a motorhome with no problem but went when there was not much traffic. You can check Google Maps for the busy times.

  • Great view! If you don't mind waiting in a line to park at the top. Everyone was too scared to go to the back of the loop ( you'll understand when you go) but there were tons of spaces, so don't hold up the line waiting at the front of the loop, just drive to the back area and there will be about ten parking spaces. Bring warm clothes, its windy and cold!

  • Breathtaking view of Hobart and surrounds from the lookout. Well worth the drive up the mountain. Visited here in September. Can get a bit coolish and the wind picks up a bit too. Be sure to bring warm clothing.

  • Visited in the middle of Winter and I enjoyed the views over Hobart. The peak was covered in snow and cloud. Hobart is a very pretty place. I couldn't appreciate it fully until I saw it from Mt Wellington.

  • On a day when the sky is blue and the sun makes all below sparkle, the view from Mt. Wellington is just spectacular. Unfortunately the height of the mountain has a strange effect on many of those that visit ... they turn back into the apes we humans derived from. The temptation to climb over the rocks is far to strong , to yell and scream like demented animals and not sit and listen to the mountain wind talking just unappealing . And the need to wonder off the pathways built to protect everyone and everything is clearly too great for most. Fortunately the mountain is often shrouded in mist when the view over the fabulous surrounds are only availble momentarily. Probably that is the best time to visit.
