We drove up to Mt Wellington to get a panoramic view of Hobart and its surroundings. The weather was fine and there was no fog on the way up. The road was good and in half an hour's time we were at the peak at about 1270 metres (about 4000 ft). In Hobart, the weather was cool and with the sun shining we enjoyed a temperature of about 19 degrees celcius. At the peak of Mt Wellington, it was another story whenever the clouds covered the sun and the chilly wind cut into our flesh. Bring winter clothing with you up there because summer is no guarantee that you will not freeze.
