The Nut Chairlift
The Nut Chairlift was designed and manufactured in Austria, to maximum safety and comfort standards. It traverses a distance of 250 meters, rising 95 meters. After a leisurely five minute ride to the top of The Nut, you can explore the plateau, soak up the incredible views and take advantage of the superb photographic opportunities.
The Nut Walk
At the Nut Stanley you will find a walking track climbing to the summit of The Nut. Alternatively you can take the chairlift, which offers spectacular views across Bass Strait beaches and over the township of Stanley. There is a range of accommodation and a very good campground at Stanley. The town is a good base for exploring the forests and coastlines further to the west.
Highfield Historic Site
Highfield Historic Site offers a historically accurate vision of a gentleman’s home and farm of the 1830s. It sits on a hillside overlooking the lands the manager would have once controlled, with views across to Stanley, The Nut and Bass Strait beyond. The house is being restored over time and its elegant Regency design, convict barracks, barns, stables, and a chapel are surrounded by a large ornamental garden.
Other buildings on the Highfield site include workshops, stables and an abbey. There are also the old remains of the quarters where convict workers were housed.
