Stanley

Experiences in Australia


The small town of Stanley, Tasmania, is located on the west side of the northern coast, on a small peninsula.  The most notable landmark in this seaside town is a large, sheer-sided bluff known as the Nut.  The Nut, once a volcanic plug, is now accessible by a rigorous hike, or by chairlift, for magnificent views.

Highfield Historic Site
The Highfield residence, built in the 1820s, is an example of the Regency period of architecture.  The imposing house and grounds are open to the public.  Highfield is located just north of Stanley on Green Hills Road.

 

Stanley Seaquarium
The Stanley Seaquarium gives the whole family a chance to view a wide range of sea creatures native to the waters around Tasmania.  Some of these animals are sharks, giant crabs, and sea urchins.  The Seaquarium is located on Fisherman's Wharf.

Tatlows Beach
A safe place for families with young children to swim and enjoy the seashore is Tatlows Beach in Stanley.  Huge numbers of small crabs come out at low tide.
