What you can expect

Cradling Hobart in its foothills, Mt. Wellington provides a picturesque backdrop for the city. Glimpse at the river, fields, and aquatic setting of Tasmania's capital as you reach the apex of this mountain on your half-day morning tour.

Leave the buzzing city behind and begin your journey to the summit of Mt. Wellington with a beautiful scenic drive along the mountains. Pass through St. David's Park, the first burial ground in the region, and spot the Anglesea Barracks, the oldest army facility in Australia. Along your way, ponder at the charming and historic Georgian houses, boutiques, and pubs at Battery Point and travel to the country's oldest brewery at Cascade Valley.

Continue climbing amid the mountain towns of Ferntree and see the massive rock formation of the Organ Pipes. When you reach the top of the mountain, crowned by alpine vegetation and snow-dusted in winter, take in the breathtaking view of Hobart, its surrounding suburbs, and the vast waterways. Before returning to the city, visit the remains of Female Factory—a defunct 19th century women's prison.
