Mount Wellington

Behind Hobart is the majestic beauty of Mount Wellington and the adjacent Wellington Park. There is a wealth of amazing scenery and outdoor activities to be enjoyed here, and it’s all just a stone’s throw from Tasmania’s capital city Hobart.

Horse riding is another popular mode of transport in Wellington Park, and there are over 75km of riding trail available. And if motorised travel is what you prefer, during summer the park also offers adventurous and challenging four wheel drive trails. These drives will test the most talented 4WDer, and are guaranteed to satisfy your off-road urge.

Because of Wellington Park’s proximity to the sea, persistent snow cover is uncommon and the park is accessible all year round. So no matter how you like to explore nature, whether on two wheels, four wheels, feet or hooves – venture out of Hobart for a day or two and do things your way.
