Geoffs Life After Work !

Mount Wellington Hobart

We have had a good week here in Hobart and it is an interesting place for the tourist.There doesnt seem to be too many obese people here probably due to the town and surounding suburbs being very hilly !! We ventured to the top of the mountain and Annie drove up AND down and at times it was a little scarey with all the twists and turns and very,very steep gradients !! Once up there the views were magnificent !  Photo were difficult to take of the city below due to low hanging misty clouds. One forward looking firm actually drives people to the top with a trailer load of bicycles  in order the paying customers may free wheel down the mountain (takes all sorts  I suppose)  The Aboriginal name for Mt Wellington is Unghbanyahletta or Poorawetter. (say that when Ive had a few !!)Rising 1270 metres (around 4,000 feet) above Hobart’s harbour and the wide Derwent River. The 21-kilometre (13-mile) drive to the summit takes you from temperate rainforest to sub-alpine flora and glacial rock formations We leave Hobart in the morning heading towards Port Arthur……..
