Mount Wellington - also known as Unghbanyahletta or Poorawetter by its indigenous names - is a snow-covered mountain with Hobart city built on much of its foothills. Towering over the city at a height of over 1,200 metres, Mount Wellington provides the backdrop to Hobart and is considered to provide some of the best views of the city. Though the mountain is frequently covered by snow - even during summer - the mountain slopes below are covered lush forests and vegetation, featuring several walking tracks and fire trails. Its most prominent feature are its “organ pipes” - columns of dolerite on its cliff which take on the shape of an organ pipe. A hike to the top of Mount Wellington is considered to be amongst the must-try activities when travelling in Hobart and will undoubtedly be an unforgettable experience – for adventurous travellers and nature lovers in particular.
