Wellington Park is an 18,011 reserve located on the doorstep of nipaluna / Hobart in southern lutruwita / Tasmania. The Park stretches west from the 1271m summit of kunanyi / Mount Wellington and includes spectacular lookouts, dramatic cliff faces, boulder fields, waterfalls, fern glades and amazing dolerite rock formations. kunanyi / Mount Wellington is accessible to walkers via a network of recreational trails, shuttle bus from the Hobart waterfront or by car or bike on a sealed but winding road to the summit (the Pinnacle), noting that car parking in the Park is limited. The road may be closed due to ice and snow - check the Pinnacle Rd Status on the City of Hobart or Wellington Park Management Trust website before departing. Be prepared for extreme and changeable weather. Lookouts and observation decks at the Pinnacle provide spectacular views over Hobart towards the east coast, to the west over the World Heritage Area of southern Tasmania, and to the south towards Bruny Island. Parking and toilet facilities are available. The Park supports a network of tracks for walking, running, mountain bike riding, horse riding (permit required) and recreational 4WDs (permit required). Popular locations in the Park include The Springs picnic area and Lost Freight Cafe, Cathedral Rock, Myrtle Forest picnic area, the Octopus Tree, Sphinx Rock, the Organ Pipes and Glenorchy Mountain Bike Park.
