We visited Mt Wellington on a cooler day without much cloud cover. Glad we brought jackets, it was so chilly on top of the mountain. Best dress for cold and possibly wet/windy conditions. Awesome views of Hobart and surrounding areas. Sure you could see 100km...More

Mount Welllington is a must see, it is very easy to access and the view is amazing. Make sure you take warm clothes it can be 10 - 15 degrees lower than down in Hobart. Go all the way to the summit, it's worth it.

Wonderful views and really worth the easy and close drive from Hobart to get to the top. Plenty of parking and very well set out with easy to get to viewing platforms.

Definitely worth the drive up the mountain. Fantastic views and a lovely drive up there. Take extra layers as it’s cold and windy up there!

Wonderful view! The drive up is a bit hairy as all the tour busses speed and don’t move over for cars. Lookouts at the top are very nice and well maintained.

For 5 day’s we could see the mountain from our hotel and it was stunning from below but also stunning when we finally took the time to drive up to the summit. Much colder than we expected but views were incredible. Unfortunately we went mid...More

Mount Wellington was well worth the hour's drive with its breathtaking views of its surrounds. We were fortunate enough to go on a day where clouds were passing straight through the mountain, so it felt like we were floating on a sea of clouds. It...More

The walk down the zigzag track is not onerous. I've actually skied down it! It's quite narrow and the decent is steep. Only try it if you are sure-footed. The views will be spectacular and the effort will be well-rewarded!
