Visiting Stanley is like driving full speed into a brick wall. When we arrived, the streets were deserted, the shops still in their winter hibernation.
It was so quiet ... so peaceful ... another world entirely.
We stayed at Horizon Deluxe Apartments for 4 nights. It was everything it advertised to be and more. You have your own kitchen ... or restaurant just down the road which we thoroughly recommend. Or you you could visit the Providore for cheese, wine and chocolates and sit out on your balcony and enjoy the sunset over the Nut. Or all three... and more.
The people we met both at the Hotel and in town were very friendly and helpful.
Highly recommended is a visit to Highfield House ... take photos at the connvict barracks ruin with the Nut in the background or walk or drive around the area. Everthing was so beautifully emerald green. You can take day trips from Stanley into the very heart of the Tarkine wilderness and be back in time for dinner in 5 star luxury ... very civilised!.
A climb up the Nut is essential taking the chairlift back and a stroll though the cemetry, believe it or not, is fascinating. These are a few of the things we did but there is much, much more to Stanley than you might imagine ... and it is sooo peaceful.
