The Nut State Reserve, Stanley

4.7
#1 of 13 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.

    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.

    The walk up the Nut via the pathway is tough. However, the walk around the top reveals great views of Stanley, Highview, King Island and Bass Strait.
