“F-f-f-f-freezing in August”
Reviewed September 25, 2013

A really interesting drive up and around to the top, watching the vegetation change dramatically, We went up late in the afternoon - possibly not such a good move in August. The wind and the cold nearly blew our eyeballs away. It was hard to see anything out in the wind and the viewing platform had been locked by then. (Not sure when it's open.) Well worth going up, though, and then, staying at Lenna's in Hobart, we had a view of the peak and could watch the clouds/snow come and go.

“A must to go in Hobart”
Reviewed September 25, 2013

Very close to the town and during a clear day it really gives you an amazing panaromic views of Hobart! It was very chilly and windy though, I kinda got blown away the moment I stepped down from the bus. Make sure you have very very warm clothing going up Mt Wellington!

“Blown away!”
Reviewed September 23, 2013

Spectacular views! After days of rain we were lucky to get a clear day and drove up to Mount Wellington. Remember to take some food with you as there is no store/cafe there. The winds were very strong and very chilly to say the least but definitely well worth a visit if you think head and dress warmly.

“Jagged a clear day and little traffic”
Reviewed September 23, 2013

The view was absolutely amazing and wouldn't have missed this! The drive was a little scary so glad that there was relatively little traffic early in the morning - just had to dodge the intrepid walkers, riders and joggers (shufflers).

“Breathtaking!”
Reviewed September 22, 2013

Make sure you go up to the summit on a clear day to make the most of the view. Great photo opportunity. Very cold up on the top but definitely worth the winding road.
