Wilmot Novelty Letterbox Trail

Local residents have created their own distinctive letterboxes from re-cycled materials in one of the most unusual attractions in the region. Bookended by the life-size Tardis letterbox at the southern end and a life-size Dalek at the northern end. Approximately 80 novelty letterboxes stretch across 20km of the C132. They include Ned Kelly, cows, a bomb, a skeleton riding a bike, motorcycle, whiskey still and many more. But the letterboxes are not the only attraction. The area is also known as The Valley of Views, with a spectacular 360-degree panorama including Tasmania’s alpine highlands, spectacular peaks and valleys, the island’s northern coastline, a patchwork tapestry of rolling agricultural hills and native forest.

Description

This 20km trail starts at Gentle Annie (a hill just south of the town of Forth) to Moina near Cradle Mountain. An ideal route to Cradle Mountain from the Bass Highway at Devonport or Ulverstone. The road has winding sections so ample time should be allowed to travel it, taking approximately an hour. The route not only features the quirky letter boxes but also spectacular views of mountains, rivers, lakes, wilderness and farmland.
