The drive up Mt Wellington is super quick and easy – but if there is snow, you might not make it all the way via car to summit.

Some lovely light can be found up there though and it’s simply one of the best lookouts I’ve ever been too.

Only about a 30 minute drive from Hobart Airport. It was about 5 degrees when I took this photo, windy and slightly drizzly – but pretty fun!

Last time I was here was in late October and there was quite a bit of snow on the mountain – it’s already beginning to snow there now!

Mount Wellington

Mount Wellington is a mountain on whose foothills is built much of the city of Hobart, Tasmania, Australia. It is often referred to simply as ‘the Mountain’ by the residents of Hobart, and it rises to 1271 m AHD over the city.

It is frequently snow covered, sometimes even in summer and the lower slopes are thickly forested, but criss-crossed by many walking tracks and a few fire trails. There is also a sealed but narrow road to the summit, about 22 km travel from the city. An enclosed lookout near the summit provides spectacular views of the city below and to the east, the Derwent estuary, and also glimpses of the World Heritage Area nearly 100 km to the west.

From Hobart, the most distinctive feature of Mount Wellington is the cliff of dolerite columns known as the Organ Pipes.
