Suburb Overview

Mount Nelson is a suburb of the city of Hobart, Tasmania, Australia above the Hobart suburb of Sandy Bay and to the south of Hobart's CBD. It is one of the oldest and more prestigious suburbs in Hobart.

The main road in Mount Nelson is Nelson Road, which extends up the mountain from the Wrest Point Hotel Casino in the suburb of Sandy Bay. It is famously known for its "bends", which consist of seven very sharp corners created as the road winds its way up the mountain. All seven of the bends have been given a name. Nelson Road is one of the oldest thoroughfares in Hobart, being laid as the path to the signal station not long after the settlement of Hobart.

Mount Nelson was originally named 'Nelson's Hill' by Captain William Bligh in 1792 in honour of David Nelson, the botanist of the Bounty mission, as "he was the first white man on it" when the Bounty visited 'Van Diemens Land' on its way to Tahiti. Nelson was one of the Bounty crew who was loyal to Bligh during the mutiny. He died in Timor on 20 July 1789 of an 'inflammatory fever' caused by the long open-boat voyage following the mutiny. His funeral was attended by the Governor and officers from every ship in the harbour. The name 'Nelson's Hill' was later changed to Mount Nelson.

Most of the modern suburban development in Mount Nelson has taken place after 1945 when the government encouraged settlement of immigrants escaping the destruction that took place in Europe after World War II. During this same period the section of hillface north of the bends on Nelson Road, which used to be a firing range, was converted into university farm land for the University of Tasmania.

A Rialannah Post Office opened on 1 April 1948 and was renamed Mount Nelson in 1956. It closed in 1971.

One college is located on the mountain - Hobart College, one of Hobart's four public secondary colleges. Mary, Crown Princess of Denmark - wife of Frederik, Crown Prince of Denmark - is a graduate of Hobart College. Mount Nelson is also home to Mount Nelson Primary School.

Mount Nelson is one of the breeding grounds for the endangered Swift Parrot. It is thought that there is only around 1000 breeding pairs in existence.

There are a number of recreational areas and activities in Mount Nelson that are popular with both locals and tourists. Several bushland tracks weave through the surrounding area. The Skyline Reserve also includes a collection of walking tracks.

The Mount Nelson Signal Station is only a 15 minute drive from the Hobart city centre and offers visitors beautiful views over the city and surrounding areas. The lookouts and adjacent caf
