Mt. Wellington (Kunanyi)

Pinnacle Road, Hobart, 7054

The Basics

The view from the summit of Mt. Wellington is one of the highlights of a visit to Hobart, and it’s possible to hike or drive to the top. Guided tours often combine a photo stop on Mt. Wellington with other Hobart attractions, such as Richmond Historic Village, Tahune Airwalk, or Bonorong Wildlife Sanctuary (where you can see Tasmanian devils). Adventurous types can also opt to hike the mountain; it's about a 3-hour hike to the summit lookout point.

We were fortunate that it was snowing up on the mountain and our bus had the authority to go past the closed gates. Our driver, Greg, was very informative but also had a sense of humour and very caring of our safety!

Day Tour in Mt. Field, Mt. Wellington, Bonorong Wildlife Sanctuary and Richmond
Got to experience nature, get up close with native Tassie wildlife and visited a historical site - the Richmond bridge - this tour has got it all. It was a small group so it felt very private and I felt very lucky to have spent the day with some very lovely tour mates. Thanks Jarrod for being an awesome guide.

Day Tour in Mt. Field, Mt. Wellington, Bonorong Wildlife Sanctuary and Richmond
The tour was a great way to experience a variety of what Tassie has to offer. Great day out from Hobart, driving through the countryside, Russell Falls was breathtaking, Bonorong was educational, wonderful food at historic Richmond and the views from Mt Wellington competed the day. Jarrod was a friendly and informative driver who made the day more special. He couldn’t do enough for us.
