Choose the right weather for a spectacular couple of hours. Take the chair lift up ($10pp), do the 40 min circuit of the summit taking in nature and the views, walk down the (steep) descent and enjoy a delicious ice-cream from the cafe at the base.

This attraction is suitable for anyone. Unfit, $10 takes you up and back on the chairlift. Fit, a steep walk takes you to the top of the Nut. From there you can walk around its rim and thus get views in all directions. The walk on the top is an easy fairly flat 1.5km. The views are well worth it... More

Well worth the walk to the top with a beautiful day and great views. Try and have a scallop pie at the cafe at the bottom Of the Nut. You won't regret it.

This was one of the highlights of my trip to Tasmania. I caught the cable car up to the top and then walked all around the top. The views from up here were spectacular looking out over the ocean as well as the little village of Stanley which was beautiful. Definitely a must do activity if you ever visit Stanley.

If you can't walk up then the chair lift is the best option. We did the chair lift and from there we walked around the top. Breathtaking views of Stanley . They are fixing up the walk ways at the moment.Take some water with you and there is also a great picnic area with tables and benches.

The weather wasn't great when we visited so we jumped on the chairlift up and walked down the hill. Good views well worth the effort.

We got the chair lift up and walked down. The circular walk is easy with good look out areas where you can see the surrounding areas. You will almost certainly encounter paddy melons on the walk.

Take the chair lift to the top for a great 360degree view of this amazing coastline and surrounds. Or if able walk to top and return.

A must see. The Nut is the lava core of a volcano, the top of it is well vegetated. Mutton bird burrows, protocols, lookouts & avoid walk. Walk up if you are fit enough or enjoy the return trip on the chairlift. I suggest walking round clockwise as there are a lot of steps the other way if you are... More
