Things To See and Do in Stanley, Tasmania
Stanley is a quaint historical fishing village at the base of an extinct volcanic plug called The Nut. Located on a peninsular extending 7Km’s north into Bass Strait and with a population of just 500 people, Stanley is a great place to take a relaxing walk along a secluded beach, go fishing or stroll around the charming old streets.
Not too far from Stanley, the west coast boasts the cleanest, most pure air in the world regularly measured at the Cape Grim weather station. The “edge of the world” at the southern head of the Arthur River is a great place to witness the rough and wild seas that crash in from the Indian Ocean and the fabled Tarkine offers an adventurous drive through button grass plains and ancient rain forest.
