We were lucky enough to have a clear day to visit this beautiful Mountain. Allow yourself enough time here to just wander around and soak up the views from all the various angles - around an hour I would suggest. It was very pretty looking down across the town and the various beaches.

It's just 15 min drive from city of Hobart. There are a few lookouts on the way to the top. I would recommend to make a few stops to take a pictures. Pick the clear day and don't forget to take a jacket or coat. It was 27 in City and the wind was blowing. It's way too windy on... More

Got to the summit, in the clouds getting blown sideways and very wet which was sort of fun but just a little scary. A must do free experience in Hobart. The views from further down if cloudy are still immense.

We went to Mt. Wellington with The Hobart Shuttle Bus company (330 pm Saturday tour) and thought it was the best way to do it since we did not drive around in Hobart. The views from the top are magnificent and it was very windy when we went up . So bundle up and stay warm and the views will... More

The view from Mt Wellington, provided there is no cloud is absolutely out of this world, from the peninsulas to the south, to the mountains to the north and Hobart and the Derwent just there. The wind can be so so strong and the temp is 10 degs less than at the base. Toilets available. An absolute must do.

Mt wellington has well designed infrastructure including toilets, shelter from the wind and cold, paths, and parking. Take a slow drive up and enjoy the scenery and forest. Try to find the roadside spring. The forest changes as you ascend the mountain. Quite stunning. I've left a few details out because i dont want to ruin the surprise of discovery... More

very long windy road but once at the top you are rewarded with the most spectacular view. We were lucky to go on a very clear day and found it to be truly breathtaking. There are a number of viewing points so very easy to get that great photo, well worth the visit to look down upon this gorgeous city

The views are fantastic and the sheltered observatory was a welcome relief from the cold breeze. Also great as we were able to allow our toddler to run around in there, without fear of him falling down a cliff.

Family with young teens travelled up the winding road on a clear morning to capture the views. Was worth the drive. Tip: take extra warm clothing as the temperature at the top is a lot colder than down in Hobart itself.

Took a drive up to Mount Wellington on a lovely sunny day. Wow! The views are amazing and really shouldn't be missed. Would be careful to only go on a clear day though.
