Stanley Golf Club features a nine-hole coastal course in the historic town of Stanley on the Bass Strait coast. It is about an hour's drive west of Burnie. The links-style course is set among the dunes, just 10 metres from the sea. Challenges include bunkers, a dam and the sometimes fierce Bass Strait winds. The course offers glorious views of the coast and The Nut – the core of an ancient volcano that rises starkly from the sea. Visitors are welcome at the club. A men’s competition is held Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday at 1pm and the Ladies competition on Wednesday and Saturday at 10am. The Stanley Golf Club hosts The Nut Major Open Event each year in mid-November. More at club website link above.

Stanley was established in the early 1800s as the headquarters for the Van Dieman's Land merino wool Company. Highfield Historic Site includes the homestead built in 1837, workers' cottages, barns and stables. Tours operate daily, or for the bravehearted, there are ghost tours after dark. (Highfield website here.) Stanley has Historic Town status and has many buildings that are more than 150 years old. It is also the childhood home of Joseph Lyons, Australian Prime Minister from 1932 – 1939. The Discovery Centre Folk Museum is packed with historic displays.

The Nut is a State Reserve and is a haven for birds such as shearwaters and orange bellied parrots, kestrels, falcons and small colonies of fairy penguins. Seals can be seen in the waters off the Nut. Stanley Seaquarium presents a wide variety of Tasmanian sealife. More information at Travelmate.
