Stunning Stanley is the tourist hub of the North West of Tasmania. The township established in 1826 has been maintained in it’s original historic significance. Stanley is built at the foot of the remains of a Volcano and is a unique place to visit.  The remains of the volcano, affectionately named ‘The Nut’ is 153 meters high and several 100 meters across.  After coffee or lunch at the many local cafes and restaurants, guests can stroll the 2 minute walk to the chair lift that will take you to the top of ‘The Nut’. From the top you can stroll to the many 360 degree viewing lookouts, or take the 45 minute walk around the Nut to view out to sea, and the surrounding ocean beaches. Stanley was also the main location of the recent Hollywood block buster The Light Between Oceans.  Highfield House, the homestead featured in the film, is a local National Trust Estate and is only a 3 minute drive from The Stanley Guest House. Seal Tours, Penguin Walks and many beaches are on offer within a few  minutes drive.  Also the world famous Tarkine Wilderness is within 30 minutes drive where you can experience exceptional walks, waterfalls such as Dip Falls and wild rivers. The world famous ‘Edge Of The World’ and the location recently awarded the ‘Cleanest Air In The World’ are within one hours drive. Allendale gardens are 12km away where you can stroll through the 7 acres of beautiful landscaped garden and 65 acres of old growth rain forest, featuring 500 year old eucalyptus (Stringy Bark Gum). The owners Max and Lorraine also make a delicious Devon Shire Tea.  As a famous local photographer aptly stated, Stanley is a ‘destination’, not just a ‘place to visit’.
