Stanley and The Nut:
The quaint historic fishing village of Stanley has been named Tasmania's Premier Tourist Town more than any other in the past decade. The major attraction of Stanley is The Nut, which affords a great view right along the coast. The Nut itself is 152m (500 ft) tall, and was formed when lava cooled to form basalt rock. It is possible to either climb The Nut by a walking track, or take a chairlift to the top.
Stanley's fishing fleets tie up near the old wharf, which was designed in colonial times to fend off the fierce seas which batter the cape. Although always a fishing town, crayfish and shark have replaced whales as the major catch. The town is filled with historic buildings, many over 150 years old, and including the birthplace of Joe Lyons, Australia's only Tasmanian Prime Minister.
A tiny treasure - the effect that you get the first time you meander down the road from the Bass Highway and sight the pristine white sands of Boat Harbour Beach, and the impossibly blue waters of Bass Strait is absolutely breathtaking! A cosy, sheltered harbour surrounded by numerous classic beach shacks, dotted with new contemporary home designs, and overlooked by lush Tasmanian farmland, Boat Harbour is a unique beachside paradise almost lost in time.
