We stopped at Burnie to stretch and grab a light lunch on the way to Stanley. Makers Workshop has a café serving decent light meals and coffee. You might be able to spot a penguin just out side if you time it right. I didn’t see any.
The view from the car. We are passing by the Rocky Cape.
Stanley is a beautiful little town with some jaw dropping sceneries.
This restaurant below (Stanley hotel bistro) has really decent food. The steak and grilled pink ling were awesome. Mains between $20 to $40. Great service.
This is the towncentre
Probably the most famous nut in the world. The Nut
It is a steep steep hike up to the nut. I felt like a goat but it was worth it.
If you don’t want to feel like a mountain goat, you could go for the chair lift if they are operating on the day. This is a really stunning track. One of my favourite. You can tell by the number of photos I took.
I’m not sure if this actually count as a look out. It looks ancient.
There is an entrance fee but you can still enjoy the view of the surrounding area even if you don’t want to go inside. I really liked Stanley. If you plan to travel Northern Tasmania for a short trip, I highly recommend Stanley. If you are going to east coast, don’t miss the gardens on the Bay of Fires.
Boat Harbour Boat harbour has a very nice café for breakfast. You could stop by and have a cuppa and a brekkie on the way to the Rocky Cape National Park. Don’t miss the Table cape if you have time.
