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.
