Reviewed 4 weeks ago

Your ideal place to take a walk along the tracks, stop of at the restaurant for a delicious bite to eat or a great warm cuppa, or on warmer days select something on the cooler side (bookings are preferred, but they will find you a sit if you haven't booked), make sure you take your camera you might be surprised by the view and the wildlife while up there.. It a great spot to take a quiet moment

Visited the signal station lookout at Mt Nelson due to the temporary closure of Mt Wellington & we're glad we did! The views are awesome - from Bruny Island to Eaglehawk neck & across the Tasman Peninsula. Great views of the Mt Wellington summit too!

Last time in Hobart we visited Mt Wellington. Mt nelson gives an alternative view to the one from Mt Wellington and is far easier to access. Only 15 minutes from the centre of Hobart and the views are simply stunning

This is worth the deviation from the motorway on your return to hobart from the South
.
I think only Tasmanians know about this as a place to visit,the views are great and theres a teashop and toilets there too.

Plus there seem to be quite a few interesting walks which Ill have to do next visit.
