Mount Wellington, Hobart

4.8
#1 of 1,444 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.

  • BE PREPARED. It gets cold, windy, wet and snowy, However it's BEAUTIFUL.
  • Have to say it’s a must go place in Hobart. The view would be breathtaking if it was less cloudy. There are 2 nicely-built lookout platforms on the top. The ride was scary a bit to me (over 1000m in height) but the road is wide enough to have 2 cars in and out at the same time. Sufficient parking spaces and washrooms available.
