14. Mount Nelson Signal Station

Parks for all People - Access for the mobility impaired in Tasmania's national parks and reserves

Take the Southern Outlet (A6), then turn off to Mount Nelson, and continue along Nelson Road (C643).

The Mount Nelson Signal Station is only a 10 minute drive from the Hobart city centre and offers visitors beautiful views over the city and surrounding areas. The lookouts and adjacent café are fully accessible, as are the toilets next to the carpark. There is a picnic area nearby with unsheltered picnic tables and BBQs, although wheelchair users may require assistance with the path leading to the area. The Truganini memorial walk, leaving from the picnic area, is a relatively flat and easy walk, although its uneven surface and narrow width make it unsuitable for wheelchair users.
