You can spot the town of Stanley for kms away with the imposing flat topped volcanic plug called ‘The Nut’ which sits on the end of the peninsular in Tasmania’s north west.
The township was built around this feature, protecting it from weathers of Bass Straight.
Wander around the township and fabulous shops. Eat some of the famous local fish and chips, visit Highfield Historic convict site AND climb the 150mts Nut!
It is a short steep ‘walk’ to the top, or you can take the chair lift. umm my clalf muscles felt a little ‘tight’ by the time I got back to the bottom! Short and steep!!!
The views from the top are stunning!!!
The showground was closed due to it being the Base Camp for the hundreds of firemen, so we were allowed to ‘camp’ by the beach during this time!!! Wish upon a rainbow.
