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.

Mount Wellington Reviews
The trip up to Mount Wellington was an experience, firstly from the change in weather reasonable to cold and then the view, amazing. more »
Well worth the drive up, the views of Hobart are spectacular but it was VERY cold... It's a good idea to stop at the container/cafe on the way up to buy something warm to drink. more »
What a view via the top of the mountain. So refreshing and amazing place to be. The God is so great that he's created place like this. The morning sunshine and sunset 🌞 would be awesome and on clear days, Hobart is spectacular from the top to view.
A must do when in Hobart. An easy drive to the summit will get you some of the best views around. Weather can close in quickly so always take a warm jacket!
