| 4 min read

Stanley is a fishing village in northwest Tasmania, on Circular Head’s eastern shore, which stretches into Bass Strait. One of its attractions is the flat-topped Munatrik or Circular Head (The Nut), which is a rock formation and a solidified lake of an extinct volcano. You can go hiking to reach the summit of The Nut, which is 152 meters (498.7 feet) high. Some choose to use the chairlift and take stunning photographs from the slope of the volcanic plug. Stanley is also a quaint town with a laid-back lifestyle, beautiful beaches, and preserved colonial buildings. It is also known for its lobster. Enjoy some fish and chips and explore the Tasmanian wilderness. For a place to stay, check out the top Airbnb vacation rentals in Stanley, Australia.
