Thank you to the hundreds of you who took part in the survey. The survey is now closed, we will be back with the engagement report shortly.


The City of Hobart has developed a plan for 47 km of new mountain bike tracks on kunanyi / Mount Wellington that identifies the potential for an expanded network of greater riding experiences for local and visiting riders.

The plan is based on work by leading mountain bike trail consultants Dirt Art and follows consultation with key stakeholders, including mountain bike riding, walking and trail runner groups.

The plan consists of:

  • 3 beginner tracks
  • 10 intermediate tracks
  • 2 advanced tracks
  • 3 shared use tracks

Hobart's kunanyi/Mount Wellington is home to almost 80 km of walking tracks, but just 4km of purpose-built, mountain bike only tracks. A survey of kunanyi/Mount Wellington track users revealed that 83 per cent support new mountain bike tracks on the mountain.

The City has committed almost $400,000 to rolling out stage one of the plan.

Note: We acknowledge physical distancing measures means our community cannot access Wellington Park and its many tracks and trails. By continuing the engagement process on this project, we can plan for the future and create great new facilities on kunanyi / Mount Wellington that can be enjoyed by our community once physical distancing measures are lifted.
