• Check out Stanley, Tasmania, for a memorable adventure

    2011-12-28

    Travelers who like to explore new destinations off the beaten path should consider a trip to Tasmania, specifically the small town of Stanley. This northwestern area boasts some amazing landscapes and natural wonders, plus provides a wealth of rugged activities and entertainment options for the adventurous baby boomer or an unforgettable girl’s getaway.

    A big draw that brings guests to Stanley is The Nut. According to the Australian tourism website, this massive formation on the coast was created from volcanic rock. Nowadays, travelers climb its summit on a circular waking path to be rewarded with incredible views of sea and sky.

    Near Stanley is an interesting natural phenomenon that may be worth a visit. The Tarkine Forest has a massive sinkhole, the only one of its kind in a forested area in the world. There are things to see and do that celebrate this unusual sight, such as a 300-foot slide that whips through the forest.

    Right outside the city limits is the Highfield Historic Site, which offers guests a look into the region’s rich past, reports Fodor’s. Professional guides, often dressed in period clothing, offer fun facts and stories about the complex that was once the estate of the Van Diemen Land Company.
