Hobart is dominated by the towering Mt Wellington and our next stop is its summit. At 1,269 meters above sea level it affords a bird's eye view of the city and much of southern Tasmania. The sub alpine environment at the summit is home to an array of wildlife and hardy mountain plants. Your guide will share stories of 'The Mountain' (as the locals call it) its history, geology and its importance to the aboriginal people of the area who know the mountain as 'Kunanyi'. The summit is famed for wild icy winds straight from Antarctica, swirling mist and snow in any season, so pack your jumper and hold onto your hat, guaranteed the view is worth the chill.
