This little place is stunning, the views from the chair lift are awesome. I am so glad I took the time to go and see this.

Its an exhausting and sometimes slippery walk up the track to the top of the nut, but the sweeping views are well worth it. The track around the top is in good condition and offers some great lookouts over the town of Stanley. At a good pace without stopping it takes about 30 mins to walk around. You can see... More

This visit was an unexpected highlight. We took the chairlift up to the top of the Stanley Nut and we did not plan on the walk around top. The weather was great so we set off. It was a great walk with well maintained paths and tracks. There are great viewpoints around the walk to look up and down the... More

I took the easy way to the top,rode up in the chairlift.This is easy for all ages.A short walk will take you around to the lookout.Magnificent view over Stanley and Sawyers Bay.If you walk a little further around the path you may be lucky to see a colony of "paddymelons".

You can take a cable car - but the walk is exhilarating. It is steep but short so just as you begin to regret your decision you reach the top. The views are great and there is more walking to be had on top to get different views. It is quite a lump.

A must while visiting Stanley. Stunning view over Stanley, the hinterland and out over the ocean. An easy 2kms circuit. We did however catch the chairlift to the top, but did the walk down. A great little souvenir shop awaits you at the bottom.

Many people take the lift up ($10 up or $16 return) and, though the ashphalt track is steep, I prefer to walk. It's not really all that far, around 400 metres in fact, and the hieight gain is only 140 metres. When you're at the top it's a 2 km circuit to do the entire loop (recommended) and you may... More

We would have been unable to make the walk, it would have been good for a younger, fitter person, the view would have been fantastic

We caught the chair lift up and back but had a great easy 2 klm walk around the nut. Great scenery and beautiful garden area to walk through and see the paddy melons. Nice cafe at bottom and a lovely lady staff member that offered to take our photo and also made a beautiful coffee for us

The climb, although steep, looks harder than it was and only takes some time due to to your fitness. Once at the top, you can see 360-degree views of stanley and the oceans.
