The nearby marina fronting Sawyer Bay is the hub of the fishing
industry - this is a opular spot for motorhomers to overnight. The caravan park
nearby has outstanding views and access to the beach, but unfortunately the Big
4 chain dont allow dogs, so we couldnt stay there. Water is VERY hard
to find in Stanley as there is no service station - nearest fuel by the way is
back at the entry turnoff. There is water on the wharves and in the lane beside
the Council Chambers, but we feel it is a bit rude to tap into this. However,
there is a tap in the little park opposite the big lobster on the Hursey building.
The photo below right shows us tapping into this - very easy access provided the
car park is not tooooooo busy. Adjacent to the tap is a wishing well come lighthouse
collecting for breast cancer. We urge all motorhomers overnighting in Stanley
or filling up with water to put at least $2.00 into the "slot"!
