Mt. Wellington cable car proposal
Mt. Wellington is a popular tourist destination located in Hobart, Tasmania, Australia’s southernmost province and gateway to the Southern Ocean. At the moment, the mountain summit remains mostly undeveloped except for a modest lookout point.
Entirely located on private land, the first section of your journey begins at Cascade. The Cable Car proposed here is a series of 8-seater gondolas that ferry visitors 1km into the foothills of Mount Wellington. These 8 seater gondolas will continually run, offering no queues and seamless flush-floor loading for bikes, prams and wheelchairs.
TO minimise the quantity of towers and visual impact of the project, our team has verified that an Aerial Tram is the best approach. With only 2 towers on public land (below summit and foothill) and a 2.1km span between them, this system will preserve the mountain face.
Concept for our cabins: Spacious enough for school-tours, wedding groups and special events, these custom-designed cabins feature an outdoor balcony, glass-bottomed floor and wrap-around floor-to-ceiling glazing to truly create a memorable, family-friendly experience. Only 2 cabins will run this section.
