Information

Mount Wellington reaches a height of 1,271 metres (4,170 ft)?and stands behind Hobart, providing a dramatic backdrop from many directions. Much of Hobart suburbia is displayed over its foothills and hidden in its valleys and ravines.

The summit is accessible by motor vehicle on a narrow road that passes through mountain side suburbs and then clings to the steep sides as it makes its ascent. Because of its popularity as a tourist attraction extensive car parking space has been provided, together with an observation shelter and toilets. Refreshment facilities are available part way to (or from) the summit at an area known as the Springs.

Walking tracks provide foot access to various parts of the mountain including the summit. Many tracks on the lower slopes provide extensive views of Hobart and suburbs and the Derwent Estuary.

The altitude of the summit provides the mountain peak with its own climate. Cloud can appear with very little notice to obscure the view. The temperature at the summit is normally much cooler than Hobart.
