Things To Do
The township of Stanley is situated in Tasmania's north-west and boasts a wealth and diversity of natural and cultural heritage. A winner of multiple tourism and tidy town awards, the pride of the people in the heritage of this district is apparent for the visitor to enjoy. Enjoy golf, fishing, scenic walks and just strolling through the township's historic streets, discovering the amazing history at every turn.
Stanley is located only 15 minutes from the major township of Smithton making it an ideal place to relax and explore the area or for an extended business stay.
Climb the Nut
A huge flat-topped circular headland that dominates the town. The Stanley Nut is actually the core or volcanic plug of what was once a volcano over 13 million years ago. Almost surrounded by ocean, the Nut rises 152 meters (500 feet) above sea level. It is now a state reserve and has a range of bird life including Short Tailed Shearwater (mutton bird), Nankeen Kestrel, Peregrine Falcons, Silver Gulls, Little Penguins and Orange Bellied Parrots. Visitors to the Nut can take the Nut Chairlift ride to the summit for a unique view of Stanley and surrounding areas. There is a 30 minute walk around the summit with lookouts and interpretation along the way and then take the leisurely ride back down to the bottom.
