Mount Wellington, Hobart Reviews
On the mountain is 10 degree lower than in Hobart city. On 12 January we drove up there, it was cloudy day. When we were there, it is only 12 degree, yes, even summer it is 12 degree here with 65km/h wind gusts. Luckily we have windbreaker and warm jackets in the car. It was so cold and windy. Hard to snap photos with my phone as the wind keep blowing and I have to hold tight to it (feel like it will get blown away any minute). I have to hold on to the side rail to snap some paranoma photos as the wind is so strong. The view is stunning, there is a indoor viewing room, you can sit in there to look at the city of Hobart as well. I believe some day is way better than the day I went. So harm to prepared yourself before go up there. Just one extra jackets.
Beautiful scenery on drive up, amazing views at the top. So many photo ops. Wasn't prepared for how cold it was at the top! Obviously hadn't read the reviews before going up! Must find out what those trees and rocks are. They did remind me of parts of Victoria's Mt. Buffalo which has a distinctive alpine landscape with huge boulders and sparsely foliaged gum trees.
Amazing views. We went by car at sunset, but I imagine sunrise would be even more spectacular. I'd like to come back again and do the climb by foot.
Beautiful area. The drive up requires some common sense and courtesy, like knowing that other vehicles are sharing a narrow road so maybe don't drive in the middle around corners? When you get up top it's busy but a large area so plenty of room for everyone.
Absolutely fantastic views! We went on a very very cold afternoon and I think we got pelted by snow or ice I can’t be sure but it did sting. That aside, it was breathtaking. Cold but beautiful. Layer up well if you go during winter or on cold days if you don’t handle the cold well. Also very easily accessible and only a 30min drive from City Center.
