The Nut


This trip we tried doing everything in the north-west of Tasmania. First stop was The Nut in a small town by the name Stanely. 

Stanley is a tourist destination and the main fishing port in the north west of Tasmania. The Nut is an old volcanic plug that was discovered in 1798. It has steep sides and rises to 143meter with a flat top. There is chairlift that you could take up to the nut but when E and I traveled there the chairlift was closed. Therefore E and I had to walk up this very steep track.

When we did get to the top it was beautiful, picturesque and very windy. At first E didn't want to walk around the top but since we aren't planning on going back the North-West of Tasmania I kind of insisted.
