Things to do:

Explore - The Nut
The most distinctive landmark, The Nut is an old volcanic plug discovered by the explorers Bass & Flinders in 1798. With steep sides and a flat top, this State Reserve rises to approximately 150 metres. Challenge yourself - Reach the top via a steep track or take a 15 minute return chairlift ride. The circuit walk around the summit of The Nut is one of the 60 Great Short Walks in Tasmania.

We recommend an early morning walk and are able to supply on request a prepared breakfast or picnic lunch, for your enjoyment.

Visit - Highfield House
Regarded as the “birthplace” of European settlement in the north-west of Tasmania, this historic site represents an important part of Tasmanian historic heritage, built by the Van Diemen’s Land Company between 1832 and 1835.


Cruise - Seal Cruises
See Australian Fur Seals in their natural habitat, taking a 70 minute cruise one kilometre offshore to Bull Rock. Photo opportunities abound with views of The Nut, the shoreline and the occasional curious seal.


Walk 50 metres to - Lyons Cottage, Alexander Terrace. The birthplace of Joseph Aloysius (Joe) Lyons, Premier of Tasmania between 1921 and 1928, and the only Tasmanian Prime Minister ever elected, between 1932 and 1939. Furnished in the style of the 1930s era, there is no visitor fee although a donation on entry is appreciated.
