All Golden Walnut locations in Stardew Valley

Ginger Island was added in Stardew Valley update 1.5. This introduced a massive new area to the game with lots of new things to do. However, to unlock most of these features, players must acquire Golden Nuts, which function as currency on Ginger Island.

Players will need to collect and use these golden nuts to unlock new areas and features on Ginger Island. There are a total of 130 Golden Nuts to find, six of which are random drops that can be acquired through fishing. The rest of the Golden Walnuts have fixed spawn locations tied to questing or finding certain locations on the map.

We’ve put together a list of all the fixed locations where Golden Nuts can be found in each section of Ginger Island as well as the Volcano Dungeon.
