Mount Wellington, Hobart

4.8
#1 of 1,416 in Nature in Australia
Mount Wellington defines the landscape surrounding Hobart the same way Table Mountain does for Cape Town in South Africa. With a summit rising to 1,271 m (4,170 ft), this wide mountain and its oft-snowcapped peak loom over the Tasmanian capital and surrounding Storm Bay. If you're up for a long stroll, hike 22 km (14 mi) to the top from the city. From here, you'll enjoy commanding views of Hobart, the Derwent River, and the bay. If you view of the mountain from the city, try to spy the Organ Pipes, a magnificent cliff of dolerite columns.

  • Beautiful View but can be very cold!
  • Loved out Mount Wellington summit experience. It's definitely a place to go for tourists visiting Hobart. This highest point of the city has a weatherproof observation deck, a boardwalk, plenty of carpark spaces, lots of hiking tracks for hikers of different levels of experience and most importantly, a great view of the city.
