For those wondering whether it is possible to walk from Hobart CBD to the top of Mt Wellington I can confirm that it is and the walk isn't half bad. Initially I started out towards the Hobart Rivulet which is a long stretch of scenic parkland, within the suburban limits of H Hobart. From near the end of this park there is a variety of tracks can be taken up toward Mt Wellington and I chose to walk up past the Cascade Brewery then onto the cascades circuit before continuing up past Secret Falls and on towards Junction Cabin. There is another cabin located nearby junction cabin with both capable oh housing about 10 people each in poor weather.

Sphinx rocks was also another feature worthy of visiting and provided excellent views of Hobart and surrounds from a perspective quite different to Mt Wellington. The Zig Zag track can be followed from here up to the summit of Mt Wellington and provides exceptional views of the mountains terrain and the organ pipes in particular. This feature would provide great trad climbing for those so inclined.

Unfortunately the day I visited Mt Wellington there was no views. The walk up the zig zag track was well protected from the prevailing inclement weather that only became fully apparent upon reaching the summit. Visibility was down to around 10 m up top and walking was difficult due to the strength of the wind. Upon later checking of the BOM I found out the wind was gusting up to 100 km /hour at this time with creating an apparent temperature of -10 degrees. Needless to say that after half an hours rest and some food in the protection of a hut on the summit I was ready to head back and wind some warmth.

I chose to head back the same way I came due to how protected this route was from the poor weather. I chose a slightly different route from junction cabin opting and followed a 4wd track back to Hobart Rivulet in order to find warmth quicker. Overall a nice full day trip for most but definately better to leave for a sunny winters day!
