The Nut Walk - Great Short Walk

The Nut Walk - Great Short Walk
The Nut Walk is one of Tasmania’s 60 Great Short Walks. The 60 Great Short Walks offer the best of Tasmania's day walking opportunities. 1 hour circuit , 4.6 km circuit. Grade 3. The centrepiece of this walk is a stark 143m high massif. The Nut, thought to be an ancient volcanic plug, juts out into Bass Strait above the historic town of Stanley. You can access the top of The Nut via a steep foot track from the township of ​​Stanley, or by riding the chairlift (fees apply). The delightful walk continues around the top of the expansive plateau through open heath and patches of woodland. From the top there are wonderfully varied views along the coast and back to the rich farmland and forests of the North-West. Please refer to the Parks and Wildlife Service Tasmania website ( for up-to-date information about this walk, alerts, closures, safe walking guidelines, leave no trace principles and National Park entry fees where applicable.
