Welcome to Mount Wellington

Mount Wellington

Visitors in Hobart can't help but notice that the city's skyline is dominated by the majestic Mount Wellington, which towers over the city at 4,170 feet (1,271 m) high. Travellers can enjoy the incredible panoramic views from atop the mountain by taking a bus to 'Fern Tree' and walking a steep zig-zag track to the top. It is frequently snow-capped, even during the summer months from time to time and the lower slopes are thickly forested. Those who choose to rent a car can even enjoy a scenic drive to the summit. Mountain biking is also a popular sport on the Mount Wellington, so enthusiasts can look into hiring a bike and some gear to enjoy the wonderful single trails on offer.

The Australian Dollar (AUD) is divided into 100 cents. Banks and bureaux de change exchange most foreign currencies. Travellers cheques are also welcome everywhere, but banks take a small commission and it is better to take cheques in major currencies (e.g. US dollars or Euros) to avoid additional charges. Credit cards are widely accepted and ATMs are freely available throughout the country. Banking hours are generally 9.30am to 4pm Monday to Thursday, and 9.30am to 5pm on Friday, but some banks offer extended hours and some are open on Saturday mornings.
