On top of the bottom of the world- almost

mt-wellington-tasmania.gif

Mt Wellington in Hobart the capital of Tasmania, the small triangle island off the southern coast of Australia offers some of the most spectacular view on earth. Being just 20 minutes from the centre of Hobart the peak rises 1270 metres and gives breath taking views of the city, Derwent River and the south arm of the Tasman peninsular. Recently a visitors centre and walkway have been added to help visitors enjoy this beautiful part of the world even more. The Aboriginal name for Mt Wellington is Unghbanyahletta or Poorawetter but was named Mt Wellington after the Duke of Wellington by the English. Charles Darwin is one of the more notable climbers, he visited in 1836 during his visit on the HMAS Beagle.
