Stanley was discovered by Bass and Flinders in 1798 and named for the British Secretary of State for The Colonies - Lord Stanley. The lord scored well as the area, and its  famous 'The Nut' remains one of the most pleasant areas in Tasmania. A base from here staying in a rural setting on West Inlet, or right in town under The Nut allows access  to a rich hinterland and to the West the purest air on the planet at Cape Grim (fact).

Mt Wellington sits behind the city of Hobart making it unique in Australia. No other city has a substantial mountain to provide it with leisure, walking, BMX pathways, outstanding views, a micro-climate (yes, a rain-shadow), and some of the purest water in the country for its water supply. Climbed by Charles Darwin, admired by Matthew Flinders, its Aboriginal name is simply Kunanyi but there is nothing simple about this beautiful mountain.
