Mt. Wellington is the mountain overlooking Hobart, the capital of Tasmania. It is 1,271 metres (or 4,170 ft) tall, and you can walk right up from the ocean to the very top in a day. It’s a nice hike, and not too difficult!
My friend Abby and I hiked Mt. Wellington in July, which is the coldest month of the year in Tasmania, and all of the locals said we were crazy. But I hiked it with nothing but a jumper and long trousers and was fine. Maybe I just have a high tolerance for cold?
Sadly, at the top we couldn’t see a thing for the fog.
