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

Green Point, Marrawah

and The Edge of The World marker at Arthur River, the next land mass directly west from here is Argentina.
