Mt. Wellington Tours

Standing sentinel over Hobart, Mt. Wellington is known by locals simply as “the Mountain.” The 4,170-foot (1,271-meter) peak offers unbeatable views over the Tasmanian capital, and the surrounding parklands serve as a popular recreational ground for city dwellers.
 
The Basics
The view from the summit of Mt. Wellington is one of the highlights of a visit to Hobart, and it’s possible to hike or drive to the top. Guided tours often combine a photo stop on Mt. Wellington with other Hobart attractions, such as Richmond Historic Village, Tahune Airwalk, or Bonorong Wildlife Sanctuary (where you can see Tasmanian devils). Adventurous types can also opt to hike the mountain; it's about a 3-hour hike to the summit lookout point.
 
Things to Know Before You Go
  • Bring all-weather clothing, even in summer. The weather can change abruptly on the mountaintop, and it’s often chilly even when it’s sunny down in Hobart.
  • There is an observation shelter and restrooms at the summit.
  • The lookout point is wheelchair accessible with easy access from the parking area.
 
How to Get There
Mt. Wellington is located just west of Hobart. The main entry point is at Fern Tree, from where the winding 13.5-mile (22-kilometer) Pinnacle Road runs up to the summit. Buses operate from downtown Hobart to Fern Tree, from where it’s also possible to hike to the summit.
 
When to Get There
Views from Mt. Wellington are most stunning at sunrise or sunset, especially on clear days. While Pinnacle Road is typically accessible year-round, you will need a 4WD vehicle in the winter months and it may be closed during periods of extreme weather.
 
Outdoor Activities at Mt. Wellington
Mt. Wellington is the grand centerpiece of the gigantic Mt. Wellington Park, where adventure seekers will find plenty to do. Hikers can scale neighboring Sleeping Beauty, Collins Cap, and Cathedral Rock mountains, or enjoy numerous short hikes and bushwalks through the forests and mountain valleys. Alternatively, explore off-road in a 4WD vehicle, go mountain biking or horseback riding along the scenic Pipeline Track, or head to Organ Pipes Cliffs to enjoy rock climbing and abseiling.
