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.

  • We visited on a semi cloudy day which meant only managing to capture some views of Hobart and its surroundings. Even so, we enjoyed our visit and would definitely recommend visiting on a clear day...

  • Top place for amazing views of Hobart area on a clear day. Be prepared for cold temperatures at the summit.
  • Very cold and windy up the top, but a fantastic view!
