We wanted to see the Organ Pipes, which are located below Mt Wellington, so opted for a hike/bush walk taking in both Mt Wellington and the Pipes. It should take no more than 3 hours and is the easier option than starting from "The Springs".
Instead you park the car at "The Chalet". The first bit is on the road heading towards the summit. After about a 20-30 min walk you will see a sign "Panorama Track" on your left. Follow this path and you will get to the summit. From the summit head south and you will get to the start of the Zig Zag track, it's all downhill and steep at places but the views and the landscape are just fantastic. You will eventually get to the junction where the Organ Pipes track starts to your left. Follow this track until you get back to "The Chalet" car park. Seeing the Organ Pipes below Mt Wellington close up was amazing, and so was the view from the summit over Hobart.
You can find a PDF of Mt Wellington Walking tracks on the Wellington Park website.
You will need good walking shoes/boots for this bush walk. When we went the Organ Pipes Track was quite muddy in places.
On the way down do stop at the Lost Freight Coffee shop @ The Springs car park. It's a beautiful spot to refuel, and their Hot Chocolates are amazing.
