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.

  • Must see in Hobart. Weather at the top is super unpredictable. It can be sunny at the bottom but 0 degrees at the top with strong winds or snow even. Awesome view. One of the lookouts was closed. We saw a wallaby eating.
  • The Mount Wellington lookout is a really nice place to visit in Hobart. It's really cold and windy up on the top, but the view is really beautiful. It would be a good idea to bring a pair of gloves and a warm jacket, since it's so refreshing up there. I really enjoy going to this place, and it's always such a pleasure to see the beauty of nature.
  • 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!
  • A must go to place when visiting Hobart. The view is spectacular and the coldness 🥶 is so memorable.
