The Pinnacle

Clear, grand vistas or icy blasts, the Pinnacle is ever-changing but ever-protected.

Opportunities and limitations for visitor facilities are outlined in Chapter 8b of the Wellington Park Management Plan 2013.

Developments allowable within the Pinnacle Specific Area in the revised management plan include:

  • Tourist Operations e.g. visitor centre, interpretation centre, viewing shelter and ancillary uses to the provision of these including limited associated retail;
  • Food Services e.g. cafe, restaurant and take-away food premises; and
  • Transport Depot and Distribution e.g. bus terminal, council depot, other Potential Transport Modes (including shuttle buses; cable cars and aerial ropeways; and funicular rail and cable rail systems).

Recent improvements to the visitor facilities at the summit of kunanyi / Mount Wellington include the refurbishment of the observation shelter by the Hobart City Council.
