Mt WELLINGTON

Mount WELLINGTON is a beautiful mountain in south eastern Tasmania. It is just west of Hobart. It gives awesome views in many directions. In winter the locals play in the snow of Mt Wellington. It has a number of great bush walks and there is an exciting bike ride down the mountain. There is an emergency shelter on the peak, but no other facilities. There is much accommodation in nearby Hobart.

From the Mt Wellington summit you are 30 minutes from HOBART CBD and the SOUTH of HOBART. You are 60 minutes from the NORTH of HOBART, BELLERIVE and PONTVILLE. Nearby places are described in the REGION HOBART page.
