Most visitors to Hobart head off
to the summit of Mount Wellington. There is a very good sealed road to the top.
Along the way there are several
very short stops and walks which are well worth a visit.

the respective walks.
There are numerous longer
wilderness walks in and around the mountain and the adjacent mountains.

Mount Wellington is particularly
suited to mountain bike riding. There are numerous tracks shared with walkers
which run along the contours of the slopes. The tracks are very well signposted.
One tour company offers bike hire from the pinnacle of the mountain to Hobart
Public transport to Fern Tree is
available. During the 2002/03 season there was a bus service specifically
for the carriage of push bikes.
