Mount Wellington

Wellington Park, Hobart

Mount Wellington looms 1,271 metres (4169 feet) above Hobart. The mountain provides a jaw-dropping lookout accessible by car and several bushwalks, including The Organ Pipes.

These column-shaped cliffs were formed in the Jurassic period when Tasmania was separating from Antarctica. Mount Wellington is also one of the best (and easiest) places to enjoy the snow.

Mount Wellington is only a half-hour drive from Hobart, and you can often see the snow-capped peaks from within the city. You can also check the snow-cam for a better idea of the conditions.

Pinnacle Road will take you to the peak; it is a windy road but overall safe, and it’s accessible by caravans and motorhomes.

There is no need for a Parks Pass, and entry is always free.
