The Nut State Reserve, Stanley

Wildlife Area Nature / Park
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.

  • Spectacular outlook over lookinf the quaint town of Stanley. We had poor weather, but it was still naturally picturesque. Some great history, and beautiful beaches. Good spots to eat on the main Street.
  • Pleasent walk up and down and the hike around. Good views. Need to be fit for the hike up rather than the chairlift. Rewarding coffee, cake, toasted sandwiches and cakes at the cafe for after.
  • Facilities appeared a bit worn but a lovely experience.
  • Love this area, stark and beautiful scenery.
  • Great spot and worth a visit!
