“Good view”
Reviewed December 21, 2012

Close to the city and is an easy drive from Hobart. You get a nice view from a lower elevation than Mt Wellington. Worth doing if you do not have a lot of time to spare.

“Good view of Hobart”
Reviewed December 18, 2012

This place is surprisingly close to the city and is an easy 10 mins drive. You get a nice and more intimate view of Hobart. The view from Mt Wellington is grander of course, but also from further away. Worth doing!

“A Great View of Hobart”
Reviewed December 13, 2012

An easy drive or bus ride from Hobart takes you to great views of the city and out towards the Tasman peninsula and the sea.

An interesting old signal stationwith explanations of its use.

Well worth the journey, free entry and the Brasserie next to the signal station is great.

“Park with a view”
Reviewed December 6, 2012

A viewpoint that overlooks Hobart. Not as high as Mount Wellington so if Wellington isn't clear then maybe Nelson will afford a nice view. Picnic tables, toilets, and park area would be nice to bring a lunch along.

“Fabulous View”
Reviewed December 2, 2012

Went up at night and saw the shining lights of Hobart at night. Very pretty. Great to go back in daylight and check out all the main highlights of Hobart.
