If you are headed to Hobart, I would definitely recommend taking a trip to the top of Mount Wellington. Although it is very windy, the view from the top makes it more than worth it.

With a 360 degree view of the city and surrounding mountains and valleys, this place is ideal for some great pictures. You can look right up the Derwent River past the Cadbury plant, east out to Port Arthur and its historic pennisula, south past Bruny Island and parts beyond.

This does close in bad weather though, so make sure you go when the weather is safe!

Directions: 10K out of downtown, and then 22km drive to the top!

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
