It appears to be a sleep village with much history.
Stanley is on the North-West Coast of Tasmania, Australia. It's a sweet little town with farming and fishing. It's population is less than 500 people, so we could say that most people know about other peoples business :)
The Port was opened in 1827.
Australia's 10th Prime Minister was born at Stanley. Joseph Lyons.
The Nut as it's called was discovered by Bass & Flinders in 1798. The rock is a volcanic plug which forms when the magma hardens, there are several or these volcanic plugs around the world.
The Nut is 152m above sea level and flat on top. When we used to visit Stanley we would climb up the hill and walked on the top have magnificent views of land sea and sand. Today there is a chair lift for those who do not wish to walk.
On the way into Stanley (turn off the Highway) there is a view area to take a photo of The Nut.
We had lunch at Wynyard some klms back arriving mid afternoon in Stanley to the Caravan Park.
Photos 2 to 4 were taken from the Caravan Park, The view of the bay was taken at the foot of The Nut where you can get on a chair lift (we didn't) but have done in the past, and once when much younger walked up the side of it.
Last photo is the view of the main part of the village.
