Mt Nelson and surrounds
Sep. 2021
Great place to have nice views of the surrounding area if you don't want to traverse Mt Wellington. There is a small signal station station with some photos and helpful explanations. You can take several walks through the bush in the area but unless you are going somewhere particular eg, walk down to Sandy Bay, the walks are just for those who want to get out into the bush. There is a cafe at the top where you can get delicious but overpriced food. the staff are friendly and it does provide a nice place for a morning or afternoon tea.

We had time to go here after Mt Wellington, and the view is worth it. There's also a little cafe for coffee, eats etc.

Easy drive, 20 minutes from CBD. Great views and interesting stories in the Signal Station. Sweeping views of Hobart and the Derwent River

This lookout is easily accessed from Nelson Rd to plenty of parking.

A cafe is to the right with enjoyable teas etc

But, the views were wide and amazing, well worth the drive

A great option if Mt Wellington clouded over .
An interesting old signal station with great views and a small cafe serving amazingly large creamy concoctions.

This is a must as a prelude to Mt Wellington. The views are stunning and the road up to the lookout is very good.

Don’t go for fireworks
Jan. 2021
We went here for New Year’s Eve fireworks. We couldn’t see a thing. However any other time this is a lovely spot to have a picnic or go for a bush walk or a spot to eat at the cafe.

Disappointing
Jan. 2021
Lovely outdoor area upgrade. Lovely staff. Good Coffee.
Confusing signage and process to get in but good Covid management.
BUT price of a dry vegetarian muffin with no butter and a coffee was very high! $15.

Fantastic view

A must-see - stunning views and often winds to match! and a bit more accessible than going all the way up Mt Wellington. Just take the southern outlet road and turn off at the signs to Mt Nelson.
