“Mountain bike tour was a blast!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 18, 2013

Did the mountain bike tour with wife and teenage daughter. Amazing views, windy and cold in January. Then the bike ride down to the wharf - thrilling! As would do it again it was so much fun!

“On Top of the World”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 18, 2013

I loved that you can see all the way down the channel and river but if it is cloudy while you are up there it can be a waste of time. The trip above the tree line is interesting and on a clear day it is definitely worth an hour or two. Better still climb it. Note the stream that folk fill up for fresh unalderated water!

Easy trip up the mountain (when roads are open) to capture a great perspective of Hobart and its coast.

“Free and worth the trip”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 15, 2013

Beautiful self drive up the mountain - deceiving from a distance as there is actually quite a pretty forest and a few bushwalks that can be done however the real treat is the view at the top. Worth a half hour or so clambering over the rocks and getting the 360 views. Wear proper shoes. Warm and sunny when we visited but can get snow and ice.

“Dont go if clouds about”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2013

We went up here on a slightly overcast cloudy day. We did not have time to go again so just thought we would hope for the best!

Hope we did, but that was it. It was very cold and windy and could not really see anything of Hobart. Would have loved to experience it on a nice clear day, but not to be.

So just a word of warning anyone going up on a bad day, probably save your petrol and go another day if you can.
