Chairlift is closed until September, the 430m walk to the top was worth every step. It is steep, but manageable. There is a hand rail to pull your self along and chairs to stop and catch your breath! Once at the top you can see...More

Even on a very windy day it’s worth jumping on the chairlift to get to the top of the Nut. Breath in the air, it’s the best in Australia. Stanley is a beautiful town. Dinners at the Pub are awesome too.

Hike up or ride the chairlift, The Nut is an interesting place with outstanding views and nice hiking trails. From the top you have an unubstructed view 360 degrees. Hope you enjoy as much as I did.

Great views after a hard climb. Birds nesting and wallabies hiding. We reccommend breakfast at Moby Dicks before the climb.

Yes, it is a steep climb but not over challenging. The alternate option is to catch the chair lift up and down. The views are amazing. It is a spectacular part of the world.

We went around 11 morning, the sun was so strong, so bring Sunnie. Be aware that the 450metres slope from the carpark to the top is very very steep, not recommend who has walking issue, but step by step is possible for all age. Both...More

We looked at the 430m winding track to the top and looked at the chairlift. No contest – chairlift wins. The 2km walk around the top is the longest 2km I’ve ever encountered but the views are truly staggering! There are several lookouts and seats...More

Fantastic views. Chair lift saved me as I was suffering a cold. Great walk, friendly staff. Lots of regeneration work taking place. It will take a few years to clear the “Gorse”. Once gone it should be great. Wildlife everywhere- Wallabies/ mutton birds/ Well worth...More

Hi Gummycat. The chairlift was not operational when I was there. Bring water and plenty of rest stops as you walk up.

The walk takes about 10-15 mins to top of the nut depending on how many stops required to take a breath or take great photos and of course much quicker to come back down. Once at the top it is just a leisurely walk around... More
