This impressive stone monolith rises eye-catchingly out of the flat landscape of Circular Head. The plateau has a walk of 2km and offers a range of breath-taking views and a variety habitats. You have a choice of either taking the chairlift up for a large fee or treading the short but steep footpath to the top. Up high you walk... More

Great location to capture a birds eye view of the lovely village of Stanley and the surrounding coastline. A chairlift is available but was not open when we were ther later in the afternoon. Decided to walk up the steep zig zag track. Yes it was a workout but the views were worth the effort. Would recommend some level of... More

Visitors can either choose to catch the chair lift to the top ($10 one way or $16 return) or take the Zig Zag track 1km. This track is steep with a rail but there are areas to rest. At the top there is The Nut Circuit 2km, clockwise is easier with more steps going down then up. Plenty of views... More

Great place to walk and see some of Tasmania's rugged and peaceful coast line If you are fit and healthy enough it is far better walking then taking the chair lift to the top

The chairlift ride was quick and comfortable, the views both on the way up and down were good. The walk around the top of the nut provides great views of the coast and Stanley. Well worth the money.

The cable car to the top is good fun and the views are just spectacular. The walk around the top is easy and we were lucky enough to see some resident wallabies / wallaroos?

Was looking up the pathway to the top of the Nut and thought mmm it sure looks steep so, decided to take the easier option and go by chairlift (one way $10pp or round trip $16pp). A short enjoyable ride. Once on top of the Nut it was an easy leisurable stroll around. Signage stated 45min round trip walk but... More

Recommend the chair lift up unless you are fit (or want to tire the kids out) as the walk is very steep. The walk around the top is fantastic as it is mostly boardwalk and has great views of the surrounding coastline. Paddymelons and other wildlife in the bush are a pleasant surprise so take your time. They appear to... More

I did this walk with a leg amputee and if she can make it to the top, almost anyone can! When I say almost, I mean that it it definitely steep on the way up and down. Possibly the steepest hill I have ever walked. Be prepared with a good hat and sunscreen and you will work up a sweat.... More
