Information

The Mount Nelson Signal Station is located on a mountain of that name south of Hobart. The sight provides a panoramic overview of the Derwent River estuary. Its choice as the sight for Hobart's first signal station was sound and logical. It was built in 1811. It was the first signal station constructed in Tasmania. It no longer operates as an aid to shipping.

The original building remains and contains interesting maritime memorabilia. It is an easy walk from the car park and viewing area. Also near the car park is the Signal Station Brasserie located in the former head signalman's house and the Signal Station Cafe. Both provide views of the same areas as the adjacent lookout. Barbecues and picnic facilities are provided in the public area of the lookout.
