Mt Wellington

View Location Map

DISTANCES: Hobart 21Km

Mount Wellington, rising more than 1500m, forms the dominant backdrop to Hobart and surrounds and with the magnificent harbour, forming the city’s best-known feature.

A sealed road leads to the summit only 21 km from the city centre and offers commanding views over Hobart, the Derwent River and the surrounding countryside for up to 100 km. Snowfalls in winter provide for fun and recreation.

Mount Wellington and the adjoining Wellington Ranges comprise a park with a number of walks ranging from easy to somewhat difficult. Among the most popular is the 3 km walk from the Springs, midway up the mountain to the Pinnacle passing the Organ Pipes.
