Steepest path you'll ever climb but thankfully only 450 metres and such a good feeling when you reach the top. Thoroughly enjoyed the 2k circuit (walking clockwise on advice of a lady who passed us on the climb - thanks for that.). The views were...More

This is one the places to visit in Stanley - you can see it from miles away. If you're feeling energetic you can climb the steep track to the top, or you can take the chairlift up (and then walk back down again). There's a...More

The classic icon of the Coast area. Worth the walk to the top and around the Nut. We had the best winter weather and thoroughly enjoyed our day in Stanley. Nothing opens before about 9.30 on the weekends though it seemed. Pity when you are...More

We drove from Penguin to visit this since our hosts told us not to miss it. Parking was ample and there was a cafe at the bottom of the chairlift. We took the chairlift up with our 5 year old. The climb up was steep...More

When visiting Tasmania's Northwest coast, this is a must see , a solitary monolith rising up from the surrounding landscape. There is a well maintained walking track for those that want the challenge of the climb, we however opted for the chair lift to the...More

An incredible place to visit, and the chair lift makes it accessible for all ages. Take good shoes and a drink

This was on our 'bucket list' as each time we had been to Stanley the chairlift had been closed for 'maintenance' or the winter break(?); so this time round we double checked and it all came together. Excellent experience and a must do if you...More

Go to Stanley and see this. Chair lift is closed this time of the year a bit of a shame would be a great view. Worth the drive.

It is virtually impossible to take a bad photo up here. Everywhere you point the camera looks spectacular. An easy walk (if you take the chairlift option), and well worth the effort. It is very exposed to the elements, so be prepared to enjoy some...More

We climbed the Nut - 430m of very steep incline but so worth it. There is a chairlift for those who may find it difficult. Once at the top there is a very well constructed path that takes you on a circuit of the top...More

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

No dogs aren't allowed. It's a "sensitive" bird breeding area, as well as lots of other native wildlife.
