Wilderness on Hobarts doorstep, Wellington Park provides walking, climbing, abseiling, cycling , mountain biking and sightseeing opportunities less than half an hours drive from the city.
Pillinger Drive turns right off Huon Road just before Fern Tree and gives easy access to the mountains maze of tracks and to the picnic and barbecue facilities at The Springs. The road passes beneath the towering crags of the Organ Pipes, a mecca for climbers. Views from the summit are superb. This is the starting point of the Mt Wellington cycle descent, one of Australias most challenging and exciting alpine rides.
