Mount Wellington via Ferntree Trip (28 km) - Hobart, TAS

Mount Wellington via Ferntree Trip (28 km)

This trip to the summit of Mount Wellington affords magnificent panoramas of the city, harbour, and Derwent River. The route leads through the western suburbs of the city to The Springs (754 metres) and continues along a scenic road winding around the mountain side to The Pinnacle (1269 metres). The return journey traces the same route, but a stop is made at Ferntree to enable visitors to see the Ferntree Bower, a summer picnic spot. Even in spring and autumn it is usually extremely cold and windy at the summit, and visitors should see, therefore, that they are suitably attired for the trip.
