Stanley Nut


About Stanley Nut

Stanley was discovered by Bass and Flinders in 1798 and was named after the British Secretary of State for the Colonies, Lord Stanley. Stanley is the largest settlement west of Wynyard on the northern coast. Its iconic 'Nut' is actually a volcanic plug rising 150 metres (492 feet). For an aerobic workout Stanley-style - or to walk off the town's specialty of fish and chips - you can climb a winding path to the Nut's plateau. Alternatively, take the chairlift to appreciate the water views from the comfort of your chair.
