“Great place for photographs of Hobart”
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.

“Not to be a Must Visit Location”
Reviewed January 29, 2012

We were at both Mount Nelson and Mount Wellington, if you have been at Mt. Wellington that you do not need to go to Mt. Nelson beacsue the view at Mt. Wellington is much better .

“Nice views over the Derwent”
Reviewed January 28, 2012

Lovely views over the Derwent river, if you're short on time and can only visit one site, go up Mt Wellington instead.

“For me - the BEST view in Hobart”
Reviewed January 23, 2012

I used to study in Hobart and have been to many places in this region. Mt Wellington gives you an enormous view and it's worth the trip but for me, the Mt Nelson lookout is an absolute stunner and the best view in Hobart. Apart from seeing the city (and you are close enough for details) it's further south than Mt Wellington so you have a glorious eagle eye view of the peninsulas and bays right across that region. The terrain is fascinating and it's serene to spend time here. While you're up there you can learn a bit about some early history and stop in at the cafe ('The Station Cafe' - which is much better than your average tourist location venue) for a meal or a drink.
