Mt Nelson Signal Station tender awarded


One of Hobart's popular tourist attractions, the Mt Nelson Signal Station, looks set for a bright future following the completion of a public tender process for operation of the restaurant and café at the historic site.

Labor member for Denison David Bartlett said the strong interest in the tender reflects the site's magnificent aspect, historic significance and scenic values.

Following the tender process, a team including Adrienne Godsmar, Joe Blake, Annick Thomas, Roz Lambert-Smith and Rhonda Bradley were chosen as the successful proponents.

"They bring a wide range of experience to this operation including experience in the hospitality industry, renovating historic buildings and events management," Mr Bartlett said.

"We are confident that this team will cater for a diverse range of visitors to the site providing quality food and beverages while also providing a range of activities that promote the heritage of the site."

Adrienne Godsmark said that they were excited by the opportunity and looked forward to the re-opening of the cafe and restaurant as soon as possible.

"We'll open progressively, beginning with light refreshments and moving toward the full complement of café style meals and fine dining as renovations to the site are completed," Ms Godsmark said.
