The Nutby Chris' Landscape Images Of Australia
ABOUT THE ART
The Nut, a sheer-sided bluff is the remains of a giant volcanic plug. The volcanoe itself erupted over 200 million years ago and it is now a towering hill watching over the beautiful ancient village of Stanley.
The Nut is a 143m-tall flat-topped volcanic formation that sits jutting into the ocean. It was discovered in 1798 by explorer Matthew Flinders, who very technically described it as, "a cliffy round lump resembling a Christmas cake”.
For the fitness enthuiast a walking track climbs to the summit of The Nut, or you can take a chairlift, with spectacular views across Bass Strait beaches and over the quaint village of Stanley.
Stanley, is a good base for exploring the national heritage forests and coastlines further west of the smallest and only isolated State in Australia.
