It is a long, windy, 12 km drive up the side of the mountain and the road is a bit small so passing cars in the other direction requires lots of concentration but the view up the top is magnificent! On the day that we we there it was cold but you expect that being so high up. We could see a 360 degree panorama of Hobart and we were even higher than some clouds. It is a great way to start a holiday in Tasmania as you can see how green and hilly the place is.

Pick a bright sunny day, take a coat , the road up is long and bendy so take it easy heading up, you may meet a tour bus on the way.

The drive itself is rather easy, we had a Nissan Micra hire car and from looking at the mountain from a distance, thought there was no chance we would get up to the top!
The drive is not overly steep and only took about 20minutes.
There are some great look out points along the way.
All roads were open and we were able to make it to the Summit. The views were beyond spectacular.
It was quite chilly and windy, but worth it.
Given this is a free attraction, it is a must do.

Having been up a few mountains in my time, Mt Wellington impressed for the fact that you get a very steep drop in a short space, so that you actually feel very high up looking over Hobart. Of course, best on a lovely sunny day !
