The drive itself is rather easy, we had a Nissan Micra hire car and from looking at the mountain from a distance, thought there was no chance we would get up to the top!
The drive is not overly steep and only took about 20minutes.
There are some great look out points along the way.
All roads were open and we were able to make it to the Summit. The views were beyond spectacular.
It was quite chilly and windy, but worth it.
Given this is a free attraction, it is a must do.

Having been up a few mountains in my time, Mt Wellington impressed for the fact that you get a very steep drop in a short space, so that you actually feel very high up looking over Hobart. Of course, best on a lovely sunny day !

A hairy, winding 12 km drive to the top on a narrow road, but well worth the effort - the views of Hobart and surrounds are spectacular! The weather can be very changeable, so pick a fine day to do the trek if you can - although having said that, it is even more of a treat when it is snowing! There are a number of stops along the way and some of these have access to walking tracks.

It's worth the drive from Hobart to see the view from the top when I arrived in the snow and nice and cold then it rained and the clouds came in so time to go back to town
