Tasmania's kunanyi / Mount Wellington
With a 4am wake-up to make it up the mountain for first light, it didn't take long after arriving at the peak for me to realise that my Sydney wardrobe didn't stand a chance against the blustery pre-dawn conditions atop Tasmania's kunanyi / Mount Wellington... even if it was summer. I'm not sure I've ever been quite as cold as I was while attempting to catch the dawn from this pretty spot overlooking Hobart. Lesson learned: layers and lots of them. Speaking of layers, take a peek at these blues...
It'll come as no surprise, it was much warmer up top of kunanyi / Mount Wellington the previous afternoon..
The drive up kunanyi / Mount Wellington is windy and narrow, you'll want to take extra care. And if you're visiting in the winter months, be sure to check the weather. Road access sometimes needs to be restricted due to weather conditions.
