Listing Details

Free camping Alma Reserve, the Wilmot River valley is located near Devonport, on the North West Coast of Tasmania. This area is being opened up for public walking through the generosity of a range of volunteer groups, Forestry Tasmania, and other landowners. An old prospecting track built by James Dooley in 1859 has been restored in many places, and in total there are some 7 bushwalks listed to date, ranging from easy to demanding. The State Library of Tasmania has several copies of a CD detailing these walks, as well as providing a brief history of the Dooley Track. The Dooley Trail is located along the west side of the Wilmot River and was constructed to provide access to the mines along the Lea, Iris, and Dove Rivers. Also referred to as the "Gold Track", picnic and camping areas are being developed in the Dooley Heritage Trail / Wilmot River Recreation Area. A loop track has been developed that enables a return journey with low water crossings marked along the route. Dooleys Track leaves Alma Reserve along Jamiesons Road. Cross the Wilmot River and take the track to the right to find a large area suited to overnight camping. The Forth River is a popular trout fishing location - there are a couple of excellent spots both up and downstream from this campground at Alma Reserve. There are basic long drop toilets on the other side of the river - the campsites are mostly sandy/dirt.
