“A different viewpoint than Mount Wellington”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2012

A short drive south of Hobart brings you to Mount Nelson lookout. It is an easy journey through suburbia and arrives at a formal viewpoint overlooking Hobart and the south. There was a cafe here but it was shut when we visited.

“Better views than Mt Wellington”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2012

The views of Hobart are better from here than Mt Wellington. Mt Wellington is just so high that everything is so far away. There is also the Signal Station Cafe where you can enjoy the view over a coffee or great food.

“Spectacular view - cafe service could do better”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2012

It really is a beautiful view but we actually went here for a late lunch but the bistro cafe had different ideas, and not just us, two other parties came in and had the same idea while we were having dessert which was all we were able to have, can't remember whether it was 2 or 2.30 but no matter, surely there should have been something more to eat rather than a refusal verging on rude - it was the only low point of a great break. The property has a spectacular aspect, they have to work hard to mess it up.

“Great place for photographs of Hobart”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2012

Most people go to Mt. Wellington and I don't suggest they cut this out of their itinerary, but I have also found Mt. Nelson a better place to take photographs of Hobart.
