Valley of Views - Wilmot is a small town with a village atmosphere and a rural pioneering background. The General Store at Wilmot has a link with the beginnings of the Coles family empire.

Wilmot residents have created an attraction with a trail of ingenious letter boxes all along the C132 road beginning at Forth.

Visitors can taste wines from grapes grown at the highest altitude in Tasmania at Wilmot Hills Vineyard.

There are a number of mature exotic trees that are of interest in the area.

Whilst driving into Wilmot, there are a number of pullover vantage positions on the road to view Mount Roland and Lake Barrington and the 1.5 hr walk to the Forth Falls is well worthwhile.

The steep climb up Bell Mountain rewards the effort with 360 degree spectacular views.
