The Nut State Reserve, Stanley
(4.8/5 based on 550+ reviews on the web)
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. Make The Nut State Reserve a part of your Stanley vacation plans using our Stanley itinerary maker.

  • Great views good way to wake up.. go for a walk up the hill
  • Great views 360degrees Can be very windy at the summit....
  • Hard steep climb, but amazing views during the easy loop walk once on top. Pay $10 each way on the chair lift is an option.
  • Beautiful iconic mountain. The walk up is very steep but quite short. My companions wanted to take the chairlift but luckily it was closed for maintenance - that thing freaks me out.
  • One of my top five in my one-year OZ visit. Excellent for star gazing!
