Park management

Wellington Park is managed by the Wellington Park Management Trust. Established through the Wellington Park Act 1993, the Trust represents the collective interests and aspirations of the land owners, stakeholders and visitors of the Park, and co-ordinates management to protect Park values.

The Constitution and membership of the Trust are specified in the Act and includes Hobart and Glenorchy City Councils, Tasmania Parks and Wildlife Service, the Department of Primary Industries, Parks, Water and Environment, TasWater and Tourism Tasmania.

The Wellington Park Office is the ‘action arm’ of the Trust. The organisation is guided by the Corporate Strategic Plan which details the current Vision and Mission of the Trust. The Corporate Strategic Plan is being revised to include the new initiatives in the Wellington Park Management Plan 2013.



For Wellington Park to be a special place, accessible and enjoyed by all for its prominent landscape, natural and cultural diversity, and community value.


To preserve the natural, cultural, recreational, tourism and drinking water qualities of Wellington Park for their own value and for the safe enjoyment of all people.

This will be achieved through outstanding management, sympathetic development and a co-operative relationship with our communities.

The Trust co-ordinates the implementation of strategies and procedures for the Park, including the Wellington Park Management Plan. Read more about the Trust’s work:

The Wellington Park Office is hosted by the Hobart City Council. A full-time Manager, one part-time Ranger and several part-time Project Officers are employed by the Trust. Co-operatively, the Trust and on-ground management agencies carry out maintenance activities within the Park.
