Fantastic views

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

Beautiful spot to see sunset and get a birds eye view of Hobart. Lovely coffee shop on site. Well worth a visit.

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.

Our Hobart visit

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.

Lovely views and walks

We enjoyed a walk along part of the Truganini track which was through a lovely forest. You can see some great views near the top.

Very nice area
Feb. 2020
Since Mt. Wellington had fog and the drive up to the mountain and back down again should only be done when the weather is clear and dry, we were taken to Mount Nelson Signal Station. We were happy that our bus driver took us here since the views of the city were fantastic. There was also information relative to the history of the Signal Station. A café is available here as well.

The drive to the lookout was good and the views of Hobart interesting. I particularly liked the information and maps available in the Lookout itself.
