Over 4,000 ft in height (1270 meters), Mount Wellington is not only a Tasmanian icon, it's an Aussie Icon as well. After Uluru and Kosciusko it's probably Australia's most famous mountain.
It's important to know that the weather up here can be so different from that in Hobart, even though it's only a few kilometres as the crow flies.
I took photographs of the falls in the previous tip when the mountain was shrouded in mist and it was drizzling rain yet, in Hobart CBD, it was a sunny day and hadn't looked like raining.
If you want to explore then getting yourself a map is a smart thing to do, then you can decide on your options as to what you want to do.
One popular pastime among the fit is to ride a bike up to the summit or, if you're less fit but looking for a thrill, there are tours available that will take you up there, supply you with a bike and you can simply go down the hill.
Some people walk it but it's a long hard slog and the weather is so changeable.
It often snows up here, even in summer, and it gets windy......very, very windy at times.
You have been warned.
