Create an itinerary including The Nut State Reserve
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.

  • It was a very windy day when we visited the Nut. Not encouraging going up the chair lift to be told that it wasn't a good idea being sent up in the wind. We made it to the top though!! Very...

  • Great view from the top , even on a very windy day. The chairlift was an easy way to get to the top. But I didn’t think that it would pass the safety check.. you have to hold the bar down yourself...

  • Loved the chairlift and the perimeter walk. If you want something a bit less challenging I’d recommending going clockwise as counter clockwise has >100 steps. Other than that look outs and wild life were amazing
  • Stanley the quintessential,off the Beaton track,town you might go to if not just to say ‘I’ve been there’ but to experience old work charm and the views are impressive from The Nut and up where the Stanley Historic House is. Wish we could have stayed a couple of nights we only did a day trip. Would be a perfect place to go to unwind for a time.
