An amazing drive up. The lookouts were spectacular. Hobart is one lovely looking city!
A warning to everyone heading up...rug up well as the cold and the wind chill can really spoil your visit and limit the time you can spend up there!

This was worth the drive up the winding road. Very cold wind blowing so wear (or take) jumper and wind cheater. Great views.

If you can take the long winding road to the top, it is well worth going. But no matter how pleasant it is in Hobart make sure you have plenty on to keep you warm, because it is icy cold up the top. Its fun climbing the rocks and going for the walks, we parked the car a little down the hill at the lookout and walked up to the top and that helped us get warm. Nice view and it may be the best place to be to see the end of the Sydney to Hobart race.

We chose to drive up at sunset on a clear evening. Two wallabies along the roadside added to the charm of the drive. There are amazing views of Hobart and the harbor all along the drive.

Just a short drive from Hobart, Mount Wellington offered the most amazing view of Hobart and the surrounding area. Well worth the trek!
