Stanley is a small town, situated in the north of the Australian island, Tasmania. There are no bus or train services that operate to Stanley, so the only way to reach the town is by car. The nearest major city is Burnie, which is about three hours by car. The drive is along the Great Nature Trail, along Tasmania’s north coast, which is a beautiful coastline, with great beaches, amazing surf, and great hiking opportunities. This area is also off the tourist trail, so you will experience beaches all to yourself.

In Stanley, there is the Nut, which is a flat-top volcanic plug; if visiting the town, it is definitely worth a visit. There is a chairlift, which goes to the top, and offers great views over Tasmania and the Bass Strait. If you are in the area, then the town is well worth a stop and visit.

There are only a handful of accommodations, including options for motels, hotels, and hostels in Stanley. Camping can also be done in or around the area. Accommodation is basic, but nice, with all the usual amenities found in Australian accommodation. There are some markets, restaurants, cafes, and roadhouses in the town, and prices are reasonable for Australian standards. Accommodation staff can usually help recommend places to eat, visit, and activities to do in the area. Most places also provide parking; sometimes this may be charged as an additional fee. The town has some amazing sunset views, so if you are in the area, buy some locally brewed beers and enjoy the evening sunset.
