Stanley and The Nut Day Trip from Devonport, Ulverstone or Burnie
Take a small group day trip with your knowledgeable and friendly local tour guide Howard, who is ready to show you around the magnificent Stanley and The Nut!
Explore the cute and quirky fishing village of Stanley and climb the imposing rock formation - The Nut!
Steeped in history, Stanley was discovered by Bass & Flinders in 1798 and named after Lord Stanley, the British Secretary of State for the Colonies. Aptly known as the ‘Edge of the World’, Stanley has also been named Tasmania’s premier Tourist Town than any other in the past decade. 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.
The major attraction of Stanley is The Nut, which affords a great view right along the coast; the Nut itself is a volcanic plug which rises some 492-feet (152-meters). If you are feeling energetic, you can climb the winding path to the Nut’s plateau or, for a more relaxed version, hop onto the chairlift for uninterrupted views of Bass Strait.
