“Worth the trip”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 May 2014

It takes a while to get up from the city - the winding road is a journey within itself. But well worth the trip! My number 1 highlight of a great Hobart holiday.

Like other reviews, very chilly at the top. I went in Autumn on a coolish day. I would not want to go up in winter!

The indoor observation deck was closed for upgrades but will be worth it when it opens again - iirc it will be heated in there.

There are also a number of walks in the area from the top to get the blood pumping and to keep your body warm. 5 stars

“Mist and magic”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 May 2014

A long winding drive, but everyone should do it. The last 1200 feet were socked in with cold clouds, and the visitors' centre was shut, but it was still worth the effort to get here. You drive from temperate rain forest through alpine semi-desert and all stages in between. Fascinating.

“Stunning view”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 May 2014

I went in summer on a beautiful clear day, but did not realize how much cooler it was up there, jumpers or coats are recommended for sure. The observation tower was closed for renovations but I am sure it will be great when it is finished. The view was stunning, so high up.

Stunning views of Hobart and surrounds, good safe road to top, take a coat and woolly scarf - it's chilly!

“Amazing view.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 May 2014

Amazing view of Hobart up there! A must-do in Hobart, for sure.
If don't rent a car it's possible book a tour which cost 25 dollars.
