Wilmot is known as the Valley of Views for its spectacular panoramas of Tasmania’s northern mountains, behind a foreground featuring Lake Barrington flanked by fertile farmland.
But the attraction that gets everybody talking is the Novelty Letterbox Trail. About 80 letterboxes stretched over 25km from Gentle Annie Hill to Moina include such bizarre construction as a bomb, a skeleton on a bicycle, cows, cars, motorcycles, planes, a whisky still and book-ended by a dalek at the the northern entrance of the trail, and the Tardis at the southern end.
Wilmot is a scenic and funny route for travellers to Cradle Mountain, but has plenty of its own attractions, including Wilmot Hills Vineyard and distillery, Cragmore Farm Olives Grove, Lake Barrington (fishing, camping and watersports), Wilmot Museum and plenty of B&B accommodation.
Between Wilmot and Cradle Mountain is the historic gold town of Moina, which features the Moina Tavern and Lemonthyme Lodge, mining town ruin s in the forest, and three spectacular waterfalls including Bridal Veil, Champagne and No Name Falls.
