About the event
Join us for an awesome adventure in Stanley on the picturesque NW coast.
Stanley Seal Cruise,
The 75 minute return Eco cruise on the 40 ft. MC Sylvia C, located Wharf Road, At Fishermans’ Dock, takes you to Bull Rock, via the nearby rocky outcrop - The Cow and Calf. Australian Fur Seals use Bull Rock as their ‘haul-out’ or ‘holiday’ rock in Seal terms.
The Nut is the remains of an ancient volcanic plug with a large, mostly flat surface that can be circumnavigated on foot (hence its original name, Circular Head). Two options exist for arriving at the top of the Nut and soaking in the glorious views of nearby Stanley and the surrounding farmland. A 10-20 minute walk to the summit or a swift 5 minute Chair lift.
Perched overlooking Stanley and The Nut on a windy promontory in North-West Tasmania, Highfield Historic Site represents a stunning example of early colonial architecture from the Regency Period (1811-1820). Visitors to the Highfield Historic Site can walk through the old homestead, outbuildings and surrounding gardens and immerse themselves in the history of this significant property so intrinsically linked to the development of the Circular Head community.
"The Edge of the World",
Take on the Edge of the World Experience and the beauty of Stanley and Tasmania's north-west coast, a region aptly named the 'Edge of the World'. This is the one place in the world where even time getting lost will be worthwhile... With ancient history to uncover, amazing landscapes to explore and locals who will be more than happy to reveal our hidden gems. Isn't it about time you come up for a breath of fresh air?
Stanley wharf is the most popular recreational fishing spot on the north west coast. It boasts good catches of snotty trevally (blue warehou), Australian salmon, couta, mullet, leatherjacket, squid and even the odd yellowtail kingfish and shark. Throw a line in, you're almost guarunteed a catch!
