Kunanyi/Mt Wellington 
Mount Wellington is officially known as Kunanyi / Mount Wellington and is situated in the southeast coastal region of Tasmania. Hobart city is built on the foothills of the mountain. It also is the summit of the Wellington Range. 

 

Kunanyi / Mount Wellington has an altitude of 1,271 metres (4,170 ft) above sea level. It is often covered by snow, even on some summer days.  The lower slopes are covered by green forest. It boasts many walking tracks through the forests. Near the summit, you can find a lookout that provides stunning views of the city of Hobart. From Hobart City, you can see characteristic cliffs of dolerite columns. These are known as the Organ Pipes. 

 

Cascade Gardens 
Cascade Gardens is a green and tree-shaded park close to Cascade Brewery and 19th century Cascades Female Factory remains. The gardens are located less than 5 km from Hobart and are accommodated with a children's playground, a running creep, lush lawns and a rhododendron-filled picnic and BBQ area. It is no surprise that the Cascade Gardens are frequently visited for family outings. The park is full of history and dates back to 1827. From the Cascade Gardens, you can follow a track along the Hobart Rivulet, which passes the inner suburb of South Hobart and continues to the city centre. 

 

Battery Point 
Battery Point finds its origins in the early days of Hobart in the 1800s. It is known for its colonial architecture, winding streets, and historical atmosphere. It is one of the most fascinating historic precincts in Australia. Today Battery Point has become one of the hippest suburbs of Hobart. However, you can still notice its historical links with the past of Hobart and Tasmania. 

 

Salamanca Place 
Salamanca Place consists of rows of sandstone buildings. These used to serve as warehouses for the port of Hobart Town. Today the buildings have been transformed into restaurants, galleries, craft shops and offices. Salamanca Place is named after the 1812 victory of the Duke of Wellington in the Battle of Salamanca (a Spanish province).
