The Tasmanian summer events program is in full swing and one of the best this month will be the Roberts Estate Point to Pinnacle run and recreational walk.

Taking place on November 20, it offers fitness enthusiasts and nature lovers a wonderful chance to join friendly and like-minded people on a visually spectacular route.
Stretching 21.4 km from Wrest Point Boardwalk to the pinnacle of Mount Wellington – two iconic destinations – participants will take in some of the most stunning and diverse landscapes in the world.

It is a physically demanding track,however, so make sure you have trained sufficiently if you plan on testing yourself against the island state’s elements.

The path follows Sandy Bay Road, passes Hotel Soho, heads along Huon Road and up Pillinger Drive to the top of the mountain – an elevation of 1,270 metres.

Buses leave at 07:30 to take spectators to the best vantage point near the finish line.

It might be a good idea to arrange a day or two of rest after completing the race and visitors are encouraged to book accommodation in one of the nearby towns and enjoy some well-earned R&R.

One of the best views in Australia; just 20mins by car from downtown Hobart - it is also the reward for those that do the Point to Pinnacle 21km. Image Credit: Jen Mealing
