We tried for a couple of days to drive up, because of the weather the track was closed. When we finally were able to go up we were not disappointed. The view of the whole of Hobart is stunning. Make the effort

Love this place. You have 360 views all around Hobart & beyond. The weather changes so quickly. It's a beautiful spot for photography. Just missing a coffee van !

There are stairs down to the lower viewing platforms, so it's not 100% accessible. But you won't be missing out by not going to these. As the others said, take very warm clothes.
