Best if you go up Mnt Wellington in the summer months if you really want to see the fantastic views over Hobart and areas. I have been up to the peak quite a few times and it is amazing how quickly the weather can change from warm to bitterly cold and the thick fog sets in.Whatever you do layer your clothes because even in summer the wind has a bite in it.1,270 metres to the top.
The view is amazing though and well worth the trip up by car,coach tour or hiking or cycling.
It is approx a 21klm drive (13 mile) and the Pinnacle rd is the only way to get to the top if you are driving...there are other places around Hobart that has walking and mountain bike tracks.The Interpretive Center at the top offers protection from the cold wind and or the change in weather such as snow/ice.
A commercial mountain bike descent is available for the dare devils also abseiling (see the brochures in Tasmania offering these).
The aboriginal name for mnt Wellington is.....
Unghbanyalleta or Poorawetter.
Directions: Take Davey rd (A6) from Hobart..keep in the right lane towards Fern Tree onto the Huon rd (B64)***Do not turn left into the Southern outlet at this point****
turn right into Pinnacle rd (C616) approx 8 klms from Hobart.
