The Park, and particularly the mountain, is significant for many reasons. Some of these meanings have been captured and are shared in print and film.

Please note that our Annual Reports and other management reports are located on our reports page.

Wellington Park Papers

The Trust has released a new publication series, Wellington Park Papers. ‘Mountain View: a diary of reflection’ is the first in the series. The diary is a thoughtful and witty conversation on the role of the mountain within our daily lives.

The series aims to celebrate Wellington Park by providing an opportunity for previously unpublished material to be made accessible to the public. The Trust welcomes any submissions including historical albums, manuscripts, diaries and research reports for future editions.

Wellington Park Papers No.1 is available for $14.95 from the Hobart City Council Customer Service Centre (corner of Elizabeth and Davey Street) and from selected Hobart bookshops. Contact the Manager for further information.

The mountain DVD

The Mountain DVD tells the story of Mount Wellington’s birth and evolution. It is a meditation that captures the mountain’s moods and movements in music and imagery.
