About Drive up Mt Wellington

Rising 1270 metres above Hobart's harbour and the Derwent River, Mt Wellington provides a wilderness experience within 20 minutes' drive of the city and is much loved by locals. The 21km drive to the summit takes you from temperate rainforest to sub-alpine flora and glacial rock formations, ending in panoramic views of Hobart, Bruny Island, South Arm and the Iron Pot and the Tasman Peninsula. The interpretation centre at the top protects you from the blustering winds and an open viewing platform on the western side of the car park looks out to the southern World Heritage Area beyond. Hanging over the city is a series of viewing platforms with access available to all. No other city in Australia has a vista like this one.
