Make sure you have warm clothes as it was freezing at the top and very very windy. View was great as it was a clear day. Best way to appreciate Hobart and surrounds.

Worth a visit for the views. Very windy and cold but there is a glassed shelter at the top. We went through reddecker 48 hr ticket and also paid a bit more to go to zoodoo in the afternoon. Awesome!

Breathtaking views. Literally above the clouds. Can be windy and cloudy but you can see the city and the bridge once there is sunshine.

Unfortunately it was cloudy at the pinnacle but the views on the drive up are beautiful with ample spots to stop safely.

We took a trip up Mt Wellington and the views over Hobart and the surrounding area were absolutely stunning. On the day we went there was snow and ice at the summit so be aware of this and take a jacket.

Great views of the city and surrounding area. We went by car, not sure if there is any other way of getting there.
