Great walk up to the Nut and walk around the top. If you don't feel like walk up there is a chair lift.

You can queue for Ice cream and then find that you have to eat it outside with no shelter....signs say you cannot eat it in the cafe. I refused to give one cent of my business to this place

Didn't use the lift, hiked up, walked round the top. Splendid views. Hiked back down again. Nice cafe at the bottom to relax after the hike. One of Tasmania 60 Great Short Walks.

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
