When visiting Stanley, you should allow at least a full day. You may wish to spend time in the historic grounds of Highfield House to learn the history of the Van Diemen’s Land Company. Or you could investigate some of the other things to do in the region.
Climbing The Nut in Stanley
At 150 metres above sea level, The Nut is not that high. The summit can be accessed by cable way or by walking a steep concrete path.
If you’re the fit type, the walk would be a comfortable fifteen minutes while for others it would be a lot of huffing and puffing and sore legs in the morning. Magnificent views of the beach, ocean and the township of Stanley are the reward for reaching the summit.
From the Editor: our thanks goes to Janette Bishop, owner of Beachside Retreat West Inlet in Stanley for the assistance given to Think Tasmania. We’ll soon have a page dedicated to the websites of Tasmanian regional groups.
