Australia's first casino, Wrest Point, is located near the University in Sandy Bay, as is the Royal Yacht Club, which hosts the Tasmanian end of the Sydney to Hobart yacht race.
Mount Nelson is the site of the south's largest senior secondary college. The Signal Station on Mount Nelson was established early last century as a relay point for communications from the Channel area to Hobart. The station affords excellent views across the river and has dining facilities.
Adjoining the Signal Station is Truganini Reserve , which has a walking track to Taroona.
Taroona is one of Hobart's outer suburbs, and features a model Tudor village and the Shot Tower.
