Mount Wellington

 Mount Wellington   

Mount Wellington, dually named as kunanyi in the indigenous Tasmanian language of Palawa kani, towers over the city of Hobart in southern Tasmania. The mountain is a commanding presence, dominating the local skyline and giving Hobart an iconic image for many around the world to recognize. The distinctive dolerite columns known as the Organ Pipes create a distinctive shape to the face of the mountain making it impossible to visit Hobart and not be awestruck by kunanyi/Mount Wellington. The vistas from the summit make a trip up the mountain a must do when visiting the capital city. Kunanyi/Mount Wellington rises to 1,271 meters above sea level and is the tallest mountain in the Wellington Range joining the other mountains of Collins Cap, Cathedral Rock and Sleeping Beauty to create Wellington Park, an area of 18,000 hectares. First ascended by George Bass, kunanyi/Mount Wellington was originally named Table Mountain and was officially renamed in 1832 after the Duke of Wellington who defeated Napoleon at the Battle of Waterloo.
