Great lookout easily accessible from Hobart, easy parking and lots of seats / beanbags to settle on and enjoy the view. Grab a coffee, sit back and enjoy the sunshine!

I took the walking track up from the back of the uni. It was well graded and marked. I thought the signal station looked interesting and the view was lovely and restful

The day we went there were wind gusts of 146 kms/hour. I had to hang onto the railing with both hands - once inside the view is stunning. Hard to believe that such a long time ago people went up there for a picnic!

Went up on a beautiful afternoon. The views were beautiful. Sat down on bean bag lounges and had a drink from cafe. Not far from Hobart. Under 20mins. Car parking in front of views. Picnic tables and great space on grass for kids to play.

Worth a brief excursion if you don't have the time to go up Mount Wellington for better views. Plenty of parking and a handy little cafe.
