Needing something more from your Tassie trip than history, fine wine and cutting-edge art? Get out into the famed environment, grab a bike and ride down Mount Wellington. The Mount Wellington Descent tour, 10am and 1pm daily, is on the tarmac and good for casual riders but there’s also an off-road section for the thrillseeker. Even without a bike, a trip up to the summit of Mount Wellington is a must and offers stunning views of Hobart. It does get chilly, though, so take extra clothes.
