Face-lift for Stanley’s Nut

A north-west tourism icon is getting an overhaul. The Nut at Stanley is one of Tasmania’s most recognisable landmarks, but facilities at the reserve are overdue for a face-lift. The State Government has recently unveiled plans to spend $600,000 over the next two years re-developing the Stanley Nut Reserve. Upgrades will include improved parking and amenities, with $450,000 earmarked to fund a new penguin viewing platform. This will not only help protect vital penguin nesting habitats but will also showcase stunning views of the nearby coastline. Braddon Liberal MHA, Adam Brooks, told The Advocate: “These key upgrades were identified during consultation with the local community…The investment in The Nut Reserve, along with $250,000 of planned improvements to the iconic Highfield House, cements Stanley as a must visit destination in Tasmania’s north-west.” Public feedback about the planned upgrades are invited, with submissions closing on July 30.
