Standing sentinel over Hobart, Mt. Wellington is known by locals simply as ‘the Mountain.’ A visit to the Pinnacle is an essential Hobart experience.
At the Pinnacle you’ll find a glass lookout building and boardwalks. In every direction the views of Hobart, all the way to the sea, are incredible.
The weather can change very abruptly up here, and it’s often freezing or can even be snowing when fair Hobart Town is experiencing mild weather.
If you’re feeling active, come to Mt Wellington to go bushwalking, bike riding, horse riding or rock climbing, or pack some lunch to enjoy at the sheltered Springs picnic area.
Just loved the view at the top. This tour is highly recommended as it included a lot of stops that other tours didn't . Great commentary!

Doing what: Mount Wellington Descent Cycling Tour departs Hobart
Great,views on a sunny day, and a fantastic tour, would book again.
Fantastic!! A "must do" for any visitor to Hobart, but keep some very warm clothes with you. The temperature was sub-zero in mid summer!!
Rising to 1270 m (4,165 feet), Mt. Wellington is reached by a 22 km (13.5 mile) winding road from Fern Tree at the foot of the mountain.
If you’re not driving, you can catch a bus to Fern Tree then go for a three-hour hike to the top.
