“Too much cloud”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2013

Mount Wellington is well worth a look out over Hobart on a clear day. We was lucked out trying to get there before the cloud, so recommend to try and visit it in summer not winter.

“It is actually as great as I'd heard -on a clear day.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2013

Third trip lucky.Clear , clear , clear .360 degree views.Such an expandable(!?) view. Blowy but not freezing , blasting wind.That was on the Queens Birthday weekend, Saturday 2013.Enjoyed our afternoon tea break part way down at the brick shelter. Had lunch at the tavern on way up. They need to heat up the Wraps' contents . The pumpkin was soo... cold .Hard to eat on a Winter's day.

“What a view!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2013

It's a bit of a slog to get up there, but well worth the drive as the view is spectacular. Take a coat as it was 5*C colder than down in Hobart!

“Great views.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2013

Great views from the top of the mountain, worth visiting summer and winter. Also worth a visit on a clear night. :)

“Fantastic views”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2013

This is a must if you're travelling to Hobart, the views are simply amazing! Make sure you take a big warm coat though, the even if it's a warm day the winds are strong and very cold up at the peak.
