Mount Wellington, Hobart

4.8
#1 of 1,380 in Nature in Australia
Mount Wellington defines the landscape surrounding Hobart the same way Table Mountain does for Cape Town in South Africa. With a summit rising to 1,271 m (4,170 ft), this wide mountain and its oft-snowcapped peak loom over the Tasmanian capital and surrounding Storm Bay. If you're up for a long stroll, hike 22 km (14 mi) to the top from the city. From here, you'll enjoy commanding views of Hobart, the Derwent River, and the bay. If you view of the mountain from the city, try to spy the Organ Pipes, a magnificent cliff of dolerite columns.

  • The drive is quite scenic. The view from the top is awesome. Though it was VERY windy when we visited. We found it really enjoyable and actually went there twice within a few days!
  • A mountain!!!!! Nice view. Nature. It’s very cold and very windy so unless you’re from the upper north part of the globe, bring proper warm clothes.
