“One of a kind”
Reviewed June 8, 2013

The Nut is probably the most famous icon in the Stanley area. It is certainly a unique natural feature. Located in the middle of Stanley it is a must see attraction. You can access the summit via chairlift (when it's operating) or walking. While the walk to the top is only around 400m, it's steep and challenging for those who are elderly or disabled. Once on the summit, you have to walk the two km easy track around the Nut. There is wildlife everywhere and they are extremely tame. The views from the lookouts are spectacular and it is a most rewarding experience. Highly recommended.

“Great sunrise destination”
Reviewed May 26, 2013

I decided The Nut was worth getting up early to visit so got up before the sun to get to the top for the sunrise. Obviously the chairlift is not functioning at that hour. So had to take the short but very steep path. Great workout for the calves. Did the full walk around the top and there was a lot of wildlife around that time of the morning. Think I gave them all a fright. Lots of pademelons. A very different perspective that time of the morning.

“Blow teh cares away!”
Reviewed May 26, 2013

The iconic Nut at Stanley is a must for a visit. Travel up by cable car, walk the curcuit arounf the top in about 45 mins. The views are really spectacular - and so are the winds at times! We chose to walk back down but you can get the cable car down if you don't mind looking outwards! A walk up to the top instead of the cable car is not for the faint hearted!!

“MAKE THE EFFORT”
Reviewed May 5, 2013

Take the time to get to the top of 'The Nut', either by cable chair, or huff and puff up the 430 metre track. (worth it!!) When you arrive, there is a 2 km walk around the top, and worth every step, with amazing 360 degree views.
