Stanley is a romantic town sitting on a slender sliver of land jutting out into the Bass Strait on Tasmania's northwest coast. It is remarkable for its incredibly well-preserved colonial buildings and its massive volcanic plug. The plug rises 150 metres out of the water and it dominates the small town skyline. This heavy touristed town is perfect for a romantic getaway, but the name of the volcanic plug belies Stanley's quaintness. Called The Nut, Stanley's cheeky geological feature is what visitors remember most. As a matter of fact, this heavy touristed town is perfect for a romantic getaway, but the name of the volcanic plug belies Stanley's quaintness.
