Mount Wellington Descent

Mount Wellington Descent - AdventuresShort on time? Big on adventure? Join the must-do activity in Hobart, the famous Mt Wellington Descent - as recommended by Lonely Planet!

Rising to a height of 1270m, Mt Wellington is a spectacular and panoramic backdrop for the city of Hobart. Take in the views of the distant mountain ranges of the southwest, to the sprawling city of Hobart below. Then follow your guide on a 21km downhill descent of the mountain all the way through to the waterfront.

From the summit to the sea, this is Hobart’s ultimate adventure experience.
Starting from Hobart’s waterfront we head the summit of Mt Wellington for spectacular views across southern Tasmania. After soaking in the views we experience Tasmania’s ultimate downhill cycle – 1270 metres to sea level.

With options available to suit all levels of riders optional off road sections are available for the more adventurous.
