We did not get the chance to go up Mount Wellington due to the snow fall from the previous days. Roads were closed for our protections. However, we did make a detour to Mount Nelson's to make up a mountain climb. Made a pit stop to Cascade Brewery and the Old Women's Prison.
August is off peak, the van was only half filled - roughly 12 of us.
The tour was good and informative - kudos to the experienced guide!
Unfortunately, we were not able to go to the peak of Mt Wellington as the road was closed due to an unsual snowfall.
We were only allowed to go up to the half-mark and I experienced my 1st snowfall!
It was beautiful!!
The weather wasn’t good for the mountains but still enjoyed the trip. Unexpected sporting of 2 wallabies, always welcomed!
Phil our guide was excellent. Unfortunately the weather didn't allow us to go to the top of Mt Wellington but Phil took us to other sites. The views were just as good. Would highly recommend this tour.
Impressive views and very interesting explanations from a very motivated driver/guide. Well organised.
The tour is good if you have a short time in Hobart and I enjoyed the view from Mount Wellington. Take a jacket.
Instructions given re meeting point not good. I was told to be there at 9 am but bus only turned up close to 9.20am... was not sure if they had forgotten to pick-up. Many buses leaving from same area so hard to know which is the right one.
Bus only left Hobart city at 9.30am so we only had 20 mins at Mount Wellington and then we wasted another 30 mins at some jail dropping off other people.
A good trip, particularly if you don't have much time. Had enough time at the peak to take photos and enjoy the views. We were also taken to see the Women's prison which although interesting unfortunately is just a shell.
This tour was amazing!
I was flying out at night so this tour was perfect. It allowed me to see the spectacular view of Mount Wellington. It was very windy so do bring a jacket. I've taken a lot of great pictures. It departed and finished on time.
This tour was amazing!
