Mt Wellington

This city has a view...

Mt Wellington towers above Hobart and its foothills along the Derwent river house Hobart’s western shore suburbs.

Mt Wellington is only a 25 minute drive from the city, and is accessible most of the year, closed occasionally when the snowfalls are particularly heavy.

From the peak of Mt Wellington if the sky is clear you are afforded with a jaw-dropping view over Hobart and all the way down the Derwent river. For a beautiful vista, Mt Wellington cannot be beaten. 

There is a summit shelter which provides some respite from the freezing temperatures which most typically haunt Mt Wellington whether its Winter or Summer.

There are also several walks around the mountain which can be accessed. For more information on Mt Wellington walks, go to
