Boat Harbour & Stanley, TAS

We had parked overnight in the mountains to see if the weather improved for a visit to Cradle Mountain.  It’s not looking promising here so we returned to the north coast beaches. So next up some great R&R at Boat Harbour, a fantastic white sand beach with ultra clear water and a free campsite – what more do you need!

I’ll just park here while you finish breakast! (Dont worry, its a disused line that had a great overnight gravel pit)

Then on to Stanley.  You cant miss the major landmark here, the volcanic cone of The Nut.  Its only a steep 400m climb to the top, or a short chairlift ride, then a 2km loop walk with great views.
There are some heritage buildings in town and you can do a self guided walk with QR code signs for online audio commentary.  There are some fancy dining restaurants but we would have liked a cheap fish and chip takeaway with fresh fish from the local fishery.
We even managed a day trip to the far west coast beaches of Marrawah
