Landmark: The Nut
Address: Browns Road, Stanley, 7331, TAS

Postcard memories is exactly what visitors will take home from this picturesque town. The quaint village of Stanley is situated 75 kilometres west of Burnie and is most popular for its close proximity to the remains of volcanic rock called The Nut.

This volcanic plug towers above the surrounding sea and lures visitors from around the country and even the world to admire this incredible coastal vista. If you're feeling energetic visitors are invited to climb the inspiring yet strenuous track to the peak where you can congratulate yourself on a job well done while admiring the view. Visitors searching for a more relaxed approach to lofty heights can hop on the chairlift.

The settlement of Stanley lies at the base of The Nut with its delightful stone cottages lining the historic streets. Guided Tours are a feature of the area so why not start with scaring yourself silly on a ghost tour of the Highfield Historic Site.

Tour historic Woolnorth property and the massive wind turbines on the wind farm and wildlife enthusiasts will love the wildlife tours in the area, particularly the evening tours of penguin-watching at the base of The Nut.
