The Nut State Reserve, Stanley

4.7
#1 of 14 in Things to do in Stanley
A nature reserve with a view over the sea, The Nut State Reserve is a sparsely populated area where wallabies roam free. A chair lift can take you to the highest lookout point on a giant rock abutting the beach, or you may choose to hike up (with a sturdy pair of hiking boots) to get the perfect panoramic photo. The village below is a quaint place to relax after your day of exploration. Be sure to grab a seat near a window at one of the cafes, because the sunset may be the highlight of your day. Inspirock's itinerary builder makes planning a Stanley trip simple and quick.

  • A unique geological feature that gives glorious views of the picturesque Stanley Township, surrounding coast and Bass Strait. Whether you take the walking track up or pay to take the chairlift, the circular 2km track is spectacular. Each side provides a different vista to enjoy, just ensure you bring warm clothing as the area is constantly exposed to sea breezes that can get quite cool. A good camera is recommended as a mobile phone can't really do the scenery justice.
  • The Nut Reserve Trail is very interesting. The walk starts with almost 60deg gradient steep that leads to the wind swept plateau. It has a vertical rocky cliff drop to the sea. The Nut has many look out points. Worth taking the walk trail.
