Towering above the town of Stanley on Tasmania’s northern coast, “The Nut” is a coastal, tabletop hill that rises steeply up from the shore of Stanley’s golden sands. Since much of the land around Stanley is flat, the 500 ft. “Nut” offers visitors a view of the northern Tasmanian coast, where it’s sometimes possible to see wild penguins as they roll and splash in the surf. Keep an eye out for scurrying rabbits and curious Australian padmelons, as you make the steep, 30-minute climb up the 1.8 mile trail. For hikers with any mobility issues, a chairlift operates throughout the day that makes it easy to summit The Nut and experience the view from the top. You’ll find multiple lookouts facing each direction, whether staring north across an ocean that’s flecked with whitecaps and waves, or gazing down on Stanley township where clapboard homes and carless streets give the feel of a coastal fishing village where time slinks slowly on by.
