The Nut


Isn't getting back to work a hum!
Do you remember that ducky cottage I told you about? It was here at Stanley in the far north west of Tasmania. You can just see little cottages hugging the base of the distinctive rock formation which is an old volcanic plug. It has very steep sides and is flat on top. There is a chairlift up and some like to challenge themselves to "climb the nut"


Settlement began in the mid 1820's, so about the same time as Richmond and Sarah Island (other places we visited). Today it is primarily a fishing village and crayfish is readily available in the shops and on menus in the season. Tourism is it's other main industry. 


It was very quiet when we visited in May but I like that.

  2. Tassie is looking like the place to go, but I don't want to do a mad rushed trip. I want to take it slow and spend time in these places. Hubby having started a new job will now be a year without holidays. I already have 4 weeks built up. I don't want to waste them.

  5. We love Stanley - we take the caravan there about twice a year. Such an underated little place - and only being 50 mins from Wynyard we can get away with our traveling for ever. There is so much to do as well. xxxx
