Spectacular views

The cable car to the top is good fun and the views are just spectacular. The walk around the top is easy and we were lucky enough to see some resident wallabies / wallaroos?

Was looking up the pathway to the top of the Nut and thought mmm it sure looks steep so, decided to take the easier option and go by chairlift (one way $10pp or round trip $16pp). A short enjoyable ride. Once on top of the Nut it was an easy leisurable stroll around. Signage stated 45min round trip walk but... More

Recommend the chair lift up unless you are fit (or want to tire the kids out) as the walk is very steep. The walk around the top is fantastic as it is mostly boardwalk and has great views of the surrounding coastline. Paddymelons and other wildlife in the bush are a pleasant surprise so take your time. They appear to... More

I did this walk with a leg amputee and if she can make it to the top, almost anyone can! When I say almost, I mean that it it definitely steep on the way up and down. Possibly the steepest hill I have ever walked. Be prepared with a good hat and sunscreen and you will work up a sweat.... More

Lovely easy walk around the top of the nut, saw wallabies or paddy melons... The Hill up/down is very steep but alternatively the chair lift could be taken 1 or both ways.

The walk up the Nut was amazing and steep but the sense of achievement was fantastic. Third time visiting but finally spent the time. Could have used the chairlift but no we walked. The walk around the top was spectacular. 365 degree view of ocean, land and back to ocean. Walk down a bit jarring on knees but steps well... More

We climbed the nut with 3 small girls 5,7 & 9. 5 yr old found the climb a challenge that she relished. Once at the top they has a great time on the circuit walk. The views of Stanley and the beaches are outstanding. If the chairlift is not working it may be a challenge for anyone with mobility issues.... More

Ive been up there a couple of times now. If the wind is howling wait for another day. They shutdown the chairlift if its too windy. The walk up is only for the fit. Once up there though the views are amazing and theres lots of wildlife hiding in the bushes. Well worth it on a good day.

We had arrived overnight from Melbourne and after the drive from Devonport and a hearty breakfast, a walk around the Nut was just the ticket. We took the chairlift as a tired Miss 8 was not in great form but really, almost anyone could make the walk. The chairlift was fun ... not sure how we would go on a... More
