Stanley, Tasmania – The Nut

We started our journey by telling the kids we were off to see a giant nut – which in their minds was a literal giant nut, like the big banana or something, so they were a little disappointed when we the nut appeared and it was a mountain.

Then even more disappointed when we told them we were going to climb up it!

On the drive to the Nut, the weather was very temperamental and it looked as if were were driving closer and closer to a rainy destination, but the weather held out for us.

After much complaining we made it to the top…

It was rather windy!  We were prepared with coats, but if I was going again I would take a beanie, as the ears got quite cold!

We walked the track around the top of the Nut, and in the middle was a small amount of bush, where I found a pocket of light…..felt like we could have been anywhere in the world, not on top of a volcanic plug!
