Just ensure that there is no major cloud cover before you set out from Hobart, as you will see nothing if there is.
An easy drive, just 20km from Hobart, through different types of mountain environment, even snow if you are lucky. Take some warm clothing if Hobart is cool, as it is much colder at the top.

Worth the drive. The views over Hobart and bejond are great - spoilt by the smoke haze but that's hardly their fault - we had to imagine a bit.
Good informational display.
The road is easy but it pays to take care

The view is amazing!!! Well worth the winding road to the top. Like most of the tourist lookouts in Australia there are some good walkways and lookout vantages

Loved the view. To go to the top, there is a bit of walking along some big boulders, and the tower at the very top is a bit high but worth it. You feel like you are on top of the world.
Facilities were great, bathroom available, etc. It was chilly, even in the middle of summer, so bring a jacket and hat.

Our decision to check out the view on Mount Wellington was a last minute thing, but we were so glad we did. The view is breathtaking - it was a wonderful clear morning, so we could see east right across to Maria Island, and Ben Lomond to the North. It seemed about a quarter of Tasmania was laid out before us. It is the best city view I have encountered, and it was exciting seeing the areas we were about to explore in the next few days, an enticing preview.
