Mt Wellington (1,271 m, 4,170 ft) is an ideal place to stand to have a panoramic view of the island. Much of the city of Hobart is built on the foothills of the mountain. It is frequently snow covered, sometimes even in summer and the lower slopes are thickly forested, but criss-crossed by many walking tracks and a few fire trails. You can go up the mountain and enjoy amazing features of the land when you are on top. From Hobart, the most interesting feature of Mount Wellington is the cliff of dolerite columns – the Organ Pipes. It has spectacular views and is one of Hobart's biggest tourist destinations.
