Mount Wellington defines the landscape surrounding Hobart the same way Table Mountain does for Cape Town in South Africa. With a summit rising to 1,271 m (4,170 ft), this wide mountain and its oft-snowcapped peak loom over the Tasmanian capital and surrounding Storm Bay. If you're up for a long stroll, hike 22 km (14 mi) to the top from the city. From here, you'll enjoy commanding views of Hobart, the Derwent River, and the bay. If you view of the mountain from the city, try to spy the Organ Pipes, a magnificent cliff of dolerite columns. Using our international travel planner, Hobart attractions like Mount Wellington can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.

What a view via the top of the mountain. So refreshing and amazing place to be. The God is so great that he's created place like this. The morning sunshine and sunset 🌞 would be awesome and on clear days, Hobart is spectacular from the top to view.
A must do when in Hobart. An easy drive to the summit will get you some of the best views around. Weather can close in quickly so always take a warm jacket!
