We were amazed at the view you get from the top and also enjoyed playing in the snow which was lying around, The boardwalks and viewing platforms were excellent. The road is also very good and plenty of parking at the top. We were so lucky with the weather and so had a clear view over Hobart.

View is fantastic on the clear day we were there we could see so very far away and Hobart and the surrounding areas are lovely. It does get very cold so rug up. A must do as part of your trip to Hobart.

A great view from the summit of Mt Wellington. Cloud can roll in very quickly so visit on a clear sunny day

views are amazing, need to make sure to take warm coat even on a clear day it can be cold, road up can be a daunting, just drive to the conditions and don't attempt to overtake it's worth it once you get there, would be great to have option to travel up by cable car or gondola from Fern Tree....

Fantastic view of Hobart, really windy tho, you need a warm coat! A lot of people walking up to the top, although you need to be really fit.

A drive (or walk!) to the top of Mount Wellington provides wonderful views of Hobart, Storm Bay (the bay into which the Derwent River flows), and the landscape for miles around. If the day is clear, take the opportunity to head up the mountain. Head south on Davey Street and follow the signs. It is a good road but does... More

A trip up to Mount Wellington is a must see if you are in Hobart - it is only a short drive from the city, however it is quite windy and narrow in places on the road up to the mountain. It only adds to it I think! The views from the top were magnificent - beware that it can... More

Awesome high country landscape. Gale force winds to challenge all. Great scenery stretching around Hobart. An ideal start to gain perspective of this great city.
