Great drive up the mountain. Once you get up there an absolutely spectacular view of Hobart and surrounds. Take a jacket because the temp drops about 10 degrees on the pinnacle.

We hiked to Sphinx Rock with the kids (4 & 7) and loved the view and the walk. There were toilets and a picnic area near the parking and interesting signs about the history of the site. The hike to Sphinx Rock was about 4km.
