Mt Wellington provides the backdrop to Hobart and is a short distance by vehicle from the City Centre. A trip to Mt Wellington is a highlight for both tourists and local visitors alike.
The mountain offers:
- spectacular walking and mountain biking trails
- excellent views of Southern Tasmania
- a rich natural and cultural history.
Much of the eastern face of Mt Wellington is managed by Council and forms part of the more extensive Wellington Park.
