We drove up to Mt Wellington the day we touched down in Hobart as the weather was fine and we had been told weather is everything when visiting Wellington, and they were right!

It was a fine sunny day but by the time we drove to the top it was blowing a gale and freezing (okay I had just got off a flight from QLD but I was dressed for the cold!) that I could live with (just!) because the views were superb, you could see for miles. There is a very nice shelter there with all sorts of information about what you are looking at, and there are loos but there is no cafe so if you want a warming beverage you are out of luck.

We were delighted we went when we did because our next days were not so good, weatherise and the top of Mt Wellington was in the clouds. So pick a good day to go up!

Well we experienced all four seasons during our stay. The views from Mt Wellington (the Pinnacle) are just amazing........before the clouds come in which they did at lightning speed! There was snow everywhere on the day we visited the mountain and this was 20 days before the start of summer!

A 360o view and good signage. Our tour driver gave a good running commentary.
Very cold winds, I would advise wrapping up well, saw a couple of shivering people wearing shorts and cotton plimsolls in September when I went up.
