Nuts about Stanley
Stanley in northwest Tasmania is a place that’ll really capture you.
We arrived into Stanley late in the evening, and then returned early the next morning, after camping outside the village. Both times we got to see its many different faces.
Stanley is a tiny little fishing village, with a massive ‘nut’, what’s left of an extinct volcano, sticking up out of Bass Strait. The village and its historical buildings, cafes, museums, curio shops and small port, are built around the Nut.
Climb up to the top of the Nut and you’ll be blown away by the breathtaking views of the forever changing colours of the atmospheric and moody Tasman Sea. While the surrounding landscape has been shaped over time to look like the green fields of Britain, once you’re on top of the Nut, the bush and wildlife is distinctively Tasmanian.
