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.

  • We decided to take the chairlift to the top of the nut. Staff friendly, chairlift safe. The walk around the summit about 45 mins was easy walking, the views from every side were beautiful. 
  • Well worth a visit BUT be aware the chair lift doesn't operate when it is windy and the climb to the top is non trivial! 
  • The nut is a standout in the area along with Dip Falls. We Chair-lifted up and walked back down. Use the chairlift both ways - it is steep. The walk around the top was easily worth the effort. Unusual...  more »

  • 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!
