Administration

Wellington Park is managed by the Wellington Park Management Trust. The Trust co-ordinates and implements strategies and procedures, and maintains a regional approach to planning and management.

The Trust, its membership and Constitution is specified in the Wellington Park Act 1993.

The Trust meets when required to transact business, generally around 5 times per year. Meetings are not open to the public.  Since 2014 the Trust has published a summary of the minutes of each meeting on this website after approval by the Trust.  At its meeting on 14 February 2019 the Trust resolved that from that date the full approved minutes of Trust meetings would be published.  However any information in the minutes that would be considered exempt information under the Right to Information Act 2009 would not be published.

An objective of the Trust is to provide sustainable opportunities for recreation, tourism and education, while conserving the environmental, cultural and water catchment values of the area.

Park management is guided by the Wellington Park Management Plan.

Co-operatively, the Trust and on-ground management agencies carry out maintenance activities within the Park.

The Hobart City Council hosts the Trust office. The Trust employs a full-time Manager, a part-time Ranger and several part-time Project Officers.
