Mount Wellington Bushwalk Adventure
Did you know that Charles Darwin climbed Mount Wellington in February 1836. You can walk in his footsteps up the slopes of Mt Wellington on this great bush walking tour from Hobart.
When Charles Darwin climbed Mt Wellington way back then, it was a rugged climb with dense undergrowth and Darwin described the Mt Wellington climb as "a severe day's work".
Today it is easier, as there are walking tracks that take you to the summit past some of the most unique flora found nowhere else in the world.
The trained guides know the mountain well and will give a commentary about the native plants and animals, pause at vantage points where you will have the best views over Hobart and the Derwent River and lead you up the mountain to the summit.
The approximate walking time is 2 1/2 hours. The walk is fun and challenging with lots of uphill and uneven tracks.
The Mt Wellington Bushwalking Tour includes hotel pickup from selected Hobart hotels, Transport up and down the mountain. Gourmet picnic lunch and wet weather gear if required.
Price per person starts around AUD $70.00 and the tour takes approximately 4 hours to complete.
This is the best tour of Mt Wellington as you get to see the real beauty that most people miss just driving up to the summit and back. While the walk is steep in parts, you only need moderate fitness to complete the hike as we stop often to enjoy the beauty.
