R.O.C.C.: Residents Opposed to the Cable Car
The delightful natural setting of mountain and river is a large part of why many of us choose to live in Hobart. The mountain is a part of who we are. There is no other Australian city, and few in the world, privileged with such a wild and beautiful landscape close by. The forested mountain slopes and the soaring dolerite columns of the Organ Pipes are the ever-present backdrop to our lives
The proposal for a cableway is anything but environmentally friendly. It would despoil an ancient landscape and Aboriginal heritage with destructive new roads, massive towers, wires, aerial buses and an imposing building at the Pinnacle. Restaurants and other facilities would lead to a dramatic increase in visitors to the summit, with many opting to drive. The Pinnacle would be effectively privatized, with the future of kunanyi/Mt Wellington tied to the commercial interests of a single developer.
Residents Opposed to the Cable Car (ROCC) and Respect the Mountain (RTM) are lead organisations opposing this development. ROCC and RTM have brought together thousands of people in rallies and actions and are active advocates for the Mountain through media and social media, fundraising events, legal challenges, submissions and lobbying.
