About the region

Mount Nelson is a Hobart suburb and the location of a conservation area and lookout, just a 10-min drive (5 km) south of Hobart. It's also the location of a colonial-built signal station. The signal station was built in 1811 and was the first of a chain of signal stations that once linked Hobart Town with Port Arthur. A short message from Hobart to Port Arthur and return reply could be completed in approximately fifteen minutes - under clear conditions. The closure of the station on Mount Nelson came with the arrival of the telegraph in 1880.

Getting there

Take a bus or drive your car to the Mount Nelson Signal Station to start the trail.
