Highlights: Mount Wellington is 1271 meters high and is a relatively high mountain around Hobart. The city of Hobart is built against Mount Wellington, from which you can overlook the panoramic view of Hobart. There are many viewing platforms at different heights on the mountain. The sunshine platform on the top of the mountain is a good place to overlook the entire city of Hobart, the surrounding bay and the distance. Mount Wellington is also a great hiking and cycling destination.
