On a clear day drive 22km to the top of Mount Wellington, which you’ve seen every day since you arrived in Hobart. And every day it’s been different - bathed in a rosy glow at dawn, resplendent in the noonday sun, darkly silhouetted at dusk.

From the top you’ll see miles and miles up the Derwent Valley, down to the Southern Ocean and across to Port Arthur. The inlets, bays, hills and this beautiful city are spread out in a stunning panorama, explained in detail in the lookout at the summit.

Mt Wellington is part of the Wellington Park, which includes many other recognisable landmarks, including Sleeping Beauty and Collins Bonnet. It is managed by the Wellington Park Management Trust.
