This is a great little walk. We lucked upon doing it anti clockwise which meant most of the steps were downwards. So if you are not very fit / agile or a bit senior its best to get the chairlift and do it anticlockwise. There...More

Escape the flies and go up to The Nut! Haha! Great walk, great views! We called out to my husband on the street below and he could hear us which was pretty amazing! Chair lift was a bit of fun, though I think it was...More

We took the chairlift - much easier than the strenuous walk to the top of the Nut. The circuit around the top took about an hour and we saw wallabies and birds. The walk was easy with beautiful views of the sea and Stanley. A...More

The Nut provides excellent views of Stanley and the surrounding coast line. The walk around at the top is leisurely and suitable for all fitness types. The walk up and down on the other hand is not for the physical challenged or people with knew/...More

The small town of Stanley in NW Tasmania has basically one thing going for it - a weird feature called affectionately 'The Nut'. Truth to tell it's not that interesting - just a weird hill that juts out strangely into the ocean. But it is...More

I went there to do the walk (2km) around the top. The view is awesome. Take around 10 mins to go at the top. It's very steep. Also, possibility to take the chairlift ($).

Stanley is definitely worth a visit at least for one night if you are in the northwest of Tasmania. Stanley has lots of convict history and is peaceful and serene. Majestic views.

Specifically came to Tasmania north west to see "The Nut". We took the return chairlift option to the top which is a short affordable trip. There is a 2km walk around the perimeter which is around a 40min walk. Clockwise is the easiest walk due...More

Excellent view, if you don't feel like walking take the chair lift to the top. Reasonably priced aswell.

Went up on the cable car but some walked up to the top. Beautiful view. It was windy so take a jacket. We walked the whole way round, saw wallabies, birds, wombats, a bunny and a couple of echidna. The views are amazing. Great way...More

Hi Gummycat. The chairlift was not operational when I was there. Bring water and plenty of rest stops as you walk up.

The walk takes about 10-15 mins to top of the nut depending on how many stops required to take a breath or take great photos and of course much quicker to come back down. Once at the top it is just a leisurely walk around... More
