Mount Wellington lies directly behind Hobart and is the city's dominant feature. It is 1,270 metres high and was formed during the Permian, Triassic and Jurassic ages. The Organ Pipes are the predominant feature, named for both appearance and sounds produced by the wind. The Van Diemen's Land Aborigines were the first to see the Mountain, calling it either Unghanyahletta or Pooranetere. The first white man to record its existence was Lieutenant William Bligh in 1788.

During early exploration the Mountain underwent many name changes, including Table Hill, Montagne du Plateau, Skiddaw, Mount Collins, and Table Mountain after its similarity to Table Mountain, Cape of Good Hope. Between 1822 and 1824 it was re-named Mount Wellington after the Duke of Wellington. George Bass was the first white man to climb the Mountain, in 1798
