Hobart

Mount Wellington or Kunanyi is located 20 minutes away from Hobart CBD. After seeing photos by Jane and Leonie and also the film, Lion, I put it at the top of my 'must see' in Hobart.

There are a few bushwalks to the top however I decided to take the easy option and drive up. The drive was a little windy however nothing scary (and this is coming from someone who drives a maximum of 3 times a year!).

Snow from the night before!

I knew that it was going to be quite cold and windy at the top however I wasn't properly prepared. It was freezing! The car said it was 3 degrees however with the wind chill it was definitely below 0. A storm was brewing and visibility from the mountain was soon obscured by the fast moving clouds.

I didn't stay at the top for very long for fear that my car would be swept off the mountain by the wind.

Lunch at Machine Laundry Cafe.

I am actually heading to Hobart for most of next week for work! I have been quite vocal about the fact that I do not have a desire to return to Tasmania. Funnily enough 3 weeks into my new job, I was informed that they would be sending me down with my manager to the Hobart office. Being a work trip, I know I won't have much time to do anything touristy. However, I am hoping to eat at Honey Badger Cafe and also explore a little (in the dark)  more as I ran out of time on my last trip.
