A treasured 18,011 ha reserve on the doorstep of nipaluna, lutruwita / Hobart, Tasmania. The Park stretches westward from the 1270m summit of kunanyi / Mount Wellington. Spectacular lookouts, dramatic cliff faces, boulder fields, waterfalls, fern glades and amazing dolerite rock formations await.
The Trust acknowledges and pays respect to Palawa as the traditional and ongoing custodians of lutruwita. Although the Muwinina, whose land included that of Wellington Park, did not survive invasion, we honour their legacy as genuine caretakers of their mother mountain, kunanyi.

The City of Hobart will be carrying out critical road maintenance on Pinnacle Rd 27 Nov - 30 Nov 2023. The road will be closed while these works are undertaken.
In early 2023, the Trust nominated 3 places in Wellington Park to the Tasmanian Heritage Register. Heritage Tasmania has since determined that the Exhibition Gardens do not meet Register criterion. The remaining places, Fingerpost Track and Wellington Falls Track, may meet at least one criteria and will be considered for inclusion on Heritage Tasmania's Priority Assessment List.
4WD access permits for the East West Trail are available for access from 6 November. Apply for your permit online and present to Glenorchy City Council for key collection. Permit fee of $20/vehicle applies.
