Crowned by alpine vegetation, dusted by snow in winter, Mt. Wellington enables you to glimpse the unfolding panorama of river, fields and the aquatic setting of Hobart town.

On a clear day from the summit, there are spectacular views over the City of Hobart, down to the D'Entrecasteaux Channel and Bruny Island, as you take in the views you will understand why this imposing mountain is close to the heart of the people of Hobart.

  • Anglesea Barracks - Australia's oldest Army facility

Magnificent views......when the mist doesn't come over. You do take your chances with the weather on this one. It also gets very cold on top of the mountain so take warmer clothes. The rest of the tour was very good and the tour guide was interesting.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended April 2015

The views from Mt Welllington was beautiful. And having the clouds go through you was surreal. Thank you to the Driver Guide for arranging the additional trip to see the Tasmanian Devils and the city tour.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended March 2015

We had an amazing time on this tour, even though it was not the best view from the top of Mt. Wellington,due to the weather, the view half way up was still incredible. Very informative driver/guide, was a lot of fun.
We would certainly recommend this tour.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2014

Brilliant!. There were a couple of stops on the way back that were a complete surprise, probably places we would never have visited ourselves. The commentary on the way to Mount Wellington was very informative and there was ample time to look around and take photos. There were no hiccups with our booking at all.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended October 2013

Outstanding! Lots of snow and gale force winds at the summit which was not entirely expected. It was quite an experience! Calling in at the beautiful Cascade Brewery on the way back to Hobart in bright sun, was a real contrast.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended October 2013

I really enjoyed this. Our guide showed us lots of sights on the way, and it was a beautiful day at the top of Mt Wellington. On the way back to Hobart, our guide showed us more points of interest, including the Cascade Brewery and the Women's Prison. It was a great morning.
