Mount Wellington

There is no other city in Australia that has a view like Mt Wellington, a stunningly wonderful wilderness experience just a brief 20 minute drive from Hobart. Locally known as 'the mountain', it is frequently snow covered (sometimes even in summer) and connects the city to the bush and mountains to the channels. It changes from mild rainforest to sub-alpine vegetation and glacial rock formations on the summit.
