“Absolutely incredible. Not to be missed.”
Reviewed 19 July 2014

We had perfect sunny clear weather from up there. It's free to look and my god what a view! Absolutely spectacular views of Hobart and it's surrounds.

A must if you have a car! and if you dont... you can walk up or catch a cab. It's so worth it!

“Fantastic views”
Reviewed 7 July 2014

Mount Nelson lookout has fantastic views all over Hobart. Although it was misty rain and cloud, it was still beautiful.

“So peaceful and pretty.”
Reviewed 6 July 2014

Loved this lookout. We went here early in the morning for a look and ended up having some 'straight out of the oven' scones from the restaurant, so YUM ! It is a nice alternative if Mt. Wellington weather is terrible.

“Wonderful views”
Reviewed 3 July 2014

Mount Wellington, of course, provides you with the best views, however Mount Nelson is well worth a look and it's only a short drive. I'm bummed that we didn't try the scones!

“Walk or drive up”
Reviewed 2 July 2014

Great view from the top and some information on the old signal station. There is also a cafe that is open most of the time. The walk up is good exercise and you can head up either side. Alternatively for the less physical, you can drive up and park at the top.
