Halls Saddle: A gateway to kunanyi/Mt Wellington


At least half a million people visit kunanyi/Mt Wellington every year, and that number is expected to climb to 700 000 a year by 2029. Already at peak times visitor numbers exceed parking and road capacity.

As with Cradle Mountain and Freycinet National Park, improving the visitor experience of kunanyi/Mt Wellington is an issue of state importance.

The City of Hobart is currently considering how we support and manage the demands on the mountain and will soon be undertaking a full review of the previous Halls Saddle proposal. A strategy will be developed by the City in consultation with key stakeholders, local residents and the broader community to ensure consultation is thorough and feeds the final strategic recommendation that would be submitted to Council for endorsement.
