Call in to Wilmington and find out why this town was once known as Beautiful Valley. Surrounded by beautiful landscapes, including the stunning Mount Remarkable National Park, Wilmington is a place where time stands still and natural beauty can be appreciated.

Be sure to have your camera ready when you arrive in Wilmington, as there are plenty of scenes to capture. Alligator Gorge, part of Mount Remarkable National Park, is located 10 kilometres south of Wilmington. At some points, the gorge narrows to only 3 metres wide and the suns rays peek through to this cool, shady space. Take a picnic lunch, challenge yourself to the walking trails and check out the beautiful flora and fauna.

Walking and trekking trails in and around Wilmington provide different perspectives of the beautiful landscape and suit everyone from beginners to the more experienced hikers. A popular walk is the trail from town up to Mount Maria, a 2 hour return walk. Or stay in Wilmington and explore the Heritage Trail, including the early settler lifeline of the Cobb and Co coach stop.

Become a kid again at South Australias oldest toy museum. The Wilmington Toy Museum hosts an impressive collection of meccano, toy cars, board games, model trains and more. There is even a puppet museum, appealing to both the young and the young at heart.
