Overview

Experience the natural beauty of the Hobart region on a downhill bike tour from the summit of Mt Wellington. With a guide, you’ll start your bike ride at the top of the mountain, elevation 4,160 feet (1,270 meters), where you can marvel at the panoramic view of the city and surrounding scenery before hopping on your bike and taking off down the hill, pedaling all the way back to sea level. Select a departure time when booking.
  • Admire fantastic views of Hobart during a downhill bike tour from Mt Wellington
  • Enjoy 13 miles of cycling with a guide
  • Opportunity to let loose on an off-road section for more thrills
  • Suitable for children and adults
  • Quality mountain bikes supplied with front suspension
  • Small group sizes of maximum 20 people, with 1 guide for every 5 riders.
Your Hobart cycling adventure starts as you’re outfitted with a mountain bike and helmet. From the top of Mt Wellington, admire the view of the sprawling city and River Derwent before hopping on your bike and taking off with your guide down the mountain. As the alpine terrain turns into a more verdant forest environment, make stops to enjoy the scenery and take photos.

Your winding route takes you into the Wellington foothills, where you can detour into an off-road section, if you wish (see below for more details). Then continue into the suburbs of South Hobart and past historical Battery Point, finishing your 2-wheeled journey on the Hobart waterfront at Salamanca Place.

This biking tour is designed for all levels of fitness; total cycling distance is 13 miles (21 km).

Off-road biking:
If you’re feeling adventurous during your bike tour, you may veer off the bike track into approximately 3 miles (5 km) of dirt-trail off-road cycling before meeting back up with the rest of the group about 20 minutes later at a rest stop. The whole group will then finish the bike tour together by riding into Hobart. (If you do not take the off-road route, the support van will follow to the meeting point.)

Great way to quickly learn about Hobart, local geology, and natural history from displays atop Mt. Wellington, to see some great views, and to have some fun. The guide was very attentive and well informed.

While it was difficult to stop touring the wonderful city of Hobart, I'm so glad I opted for the bike ride from the top of Mt. Wellington. The pick-up spot was easy to find and, once loaded up, we started the long ride to the top. Commentary from both the driver and guide kept us informed about what we could expect with the bike ride as well as local history/information.
The views at the top are stunning and we had a little time to walk around a bit and take photos and explore. The bike trip was effortless...all downhill except for a few slight uphill spots but never even had to shift gears. The on-road sections were smooth riding but a little unnerving because we shared the curvy road with cars although traffic was light. The off-road section while bumpy, was calmer and slower. We were never pressed to hurry and the guide always reminded us to take it at our own pace. VERY enjoyable experience and I would highly recommend it!

A great way to get to the top of Mt Wellington and ride back down as fast as a car without any effort. A few fire tracks and city street riding to add to the pleasure.

This was a great experience. We were fortunate in that it was perfect cycling weather and there was not one cloud to obscure the views of Hobart and surrounding landscapes from the top of Mt. Wellington.

The trip was wonderful - a speedy descent of Mt Wellington - part road, part dirt track top half pretty fast/steep but easily achieved on the well maintained mountain bikes provided by someone with moderate cycling skills. Wonderful views and a great way to understand the layout of Hobart. The leader was a lot of fun and very helpful and knowledgeable.

Great excursion, lots of fun! The only thing I would change is the amount of time you have at the summit. When you get to the summit you have only about 10-15 minutes for a restroom break long lines and to take in the sites. The view from the summit and the scenery warrant more time. I would say 1 hour for site seeing, restroom stop and getting geared up for the ride.

Of course, I was extremely lucky. We had the most beautiful day imaginable, but I loved the tour. Our tour guide and driver were both friendly and knowledgeable. They met the group right on time at the appointed location and drove us to the top of Mt. Willington. They were very careful with fittings and the equipment was in excellent condition. I can ride a bike, but do not ride regularly. The ride down however was thrilling, but easy and those of us who were slower never felt like we were keeping the group back. They just waited for us periodically. It was impossible to get lost. The scenery was spectacular and I thoroughly enjoyed the ride. I even enjoyed the last couple of miles when we had to peddle threw Hobart and along the harbor. I guess I wasn't expecting that. I would recommend it to anyone with a sense of adventure and some bicycle skills.

It took me a while to get a hang of the bike. But once I did it, it was thrilling to decent Mount Wellington with these guys. Very nice organised.

This tour was excellent, although bikes probably needed to be checked for safety before they left. ONe of my group is a professional cyclist and the 2 bikes they were using had faulty brakes
Maybe just a better maintenance, but tour and ride and guide excellent
