Sheffield, Railton & Wilmot

If you’re looking for scenery, Sheffield and Railton will fill every need.

Set aside time to explore! With over 80 murals adorning the buildings, take a self-guided tour of Sheffield. You will want to find what Tasmania’s largest outdoor art gallery has to offer. At nearby Railton, pick up a walking guide of the many topiaries underway in various stages of growth.

Spend a night or two in a cosy B&B and explore the region – apart from Cradle Mountain, you’ll find galleries, a brewery, berry farms and numerous walks and activities.

A constant backdrop to lush, verdant farmlands and gorgeous little towns filled with arts, crafts and delicious foods is picturesque Mount Roland; put on your hiking boots and make it a destination.

Explore the beauty of the surrounding area; on horseback, both beginners and advanced riders are catered for, or via a wine tasting tour of some delightful local vineyards.
