There are a host of things to do and see around the villages - walks, historical buildings, picnics, camping and lookouts over spectacular wilderness areas.

Both villages are very small and can be easily accessed by foot or a short car trip. We encourage you to explore at a leisurely pace and kindly ask that you leave nothing but footprints, and take nothing but photographs.

There are public toilets at Silva Plana (just as you enter Mt Wilson), the Fire Station, Founders Corner, Waterfall Reserve and Cathedral Reserve. There are no shops, cafes or ATMs in either village.
