Well worth the windy roads to reach the summit. Children loved throwing snowballs, and running amok. The views are incredible.

Wow! I couldn't believe that we were still in the same country let alone city! The scenery is breathtaking. We went in Winter, there was snow so I knew it would be cold BUT the wind chill made it nearly unbearable! Wear full snow gear, gloves beanies ect and hold onto your children because it is CRAZY windy!!!!

Windy roads lead you to the peak of the mountain, drive carefully and you will be well rewarded with great 360 views over Hobart. Plenty of viewing platforms and photo sites to take advantage of!

Great view if there is no cloud coverage. If cloudy, there is not much to see so I suggest waiting for the right time to go. Make sure to bring a jacket as its a lot colder than at sea level. Tip - Go to Cascade Brewery on the drive back down to Hobart as its a nice place to... More

Very cold but the best view ove Hobart by far. Expect electrical disruption to cars and motorcycles as lots interference. Park your vehicle so that you are able,to roll out of the parking lot down the hill. 100m down all returns to normal. Take warm clothes as always freezing and windy up there

Was bloody cold in the middle of the day, with snow on the ground up the top. Fantastic views and some interesting history. Worth the drive.

Well worth the trip up the winding road, up through the trees, sometimes pockets of snow, we travelled above the tree line to the pinnacle. It's an amazing view from the top, and we were proud to show our city and its environs to our mainland friends. With a clear view for most of the time we were there, it... More

Definitely worth the drive for a panoramic view of Hobart and surrounds. But it is freezing - expect it to be colder and windier than in town and rug up!
