Mount Wellington, Hobart

4.8
#1 of 1,380 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.

  • Long drive up to Mt Wellington but well worth the effort. Quite warm in Hobart town but absolutely FREEZING when we reached the top. The view makes it all worthwhile though.  more »

  • The drive is quite scenic. The view from the top is awesome. Though it was VERY windy when we visited. We found it really enjoyable and actually went there twice within a few days!
  • A mountain!!!!! Nice view. Nature. It’s very cold and very windy so unless you’re from the upper north part of the globe, bring proper warm clothes.
  • You're literally on top of the world. It was raining, the clouds passing through tall structures, beautiful lookouts at the Pinnacle and clean toilets (yep, even that high up). Rug up, there's a storm on top if you come in June. It's a fantastic experience overlooking Hobart. Do not miss it!
  • Loved it. The view is spectacular spent 3 hours up there playing in the snow. Fantastic.
  • Needs that cable car put in but great lookout. Wind n weather is the challenge here. But the indoor veiwing platform is spectacular
