Organ Pipes (February 2016)

One of the more distinctive features of Mt. Wellington/kunanyi is the set of dolerite columns facing out below the summit. These are the organ pipes, and the trail that takes you up close to them is just spectacular.

It’s an easy climb, peppered with stunning views of Hobart and its surrounds, as well as the impressive sight of the Organ Pipes themselves. This particular day kept alternating rapidly between clearest blue skies and being completely overcast, allowing me to see these sights in (literal) different lights, and that was just fantastic.

I took the path that loops back on the Hunter’s Track to Junction Cabin, before heading back to the carpark at The Springs along the Lenah Valley trail. An additional highlight was stopping off to see Lone Cabin, which is just the cutest lil’ hut.
