Hobart's guardian peak, Wellington Park sweeps up from the city's suburban fringe to the Pinnacle. With a sealed road to the summit, and an extensive network of walking tracks and fire trails, there's a range of activities for every visitor - bushwalking, mountain bike riding, cross country skiing, orienteering, picnics, barbecues and sightseeing from the many spectacular vantage points.
Clear, fresh mountain water from the North West Bay River catchment on the south-east face of Mt Wellington provides a quarter of Hobart's drinking water supply, and the original Mountain Park was first set aside to protect this precious resource.
Though close to the sea, this is a 1270m alpine peak, with the chance of extreme weather conditions at any time of the year. Choose a bright, clear day for the best views - from the summit, you can follow the sweep of the Derwent through the city to the sea, and gaze over towards World Heritage Area wilderness....
