Wilmington is a quiet little country town with a population of 242. The town is very close to well known tourist attractions such as Alligator Gorge and Hancock’s Lookout. Wilmington services a farming community, known for sheep, wheat and barley, but more recently the temperature conditions and rainfall has contributed to the increasing popularity of the planting of olives. Future growth will centre around providing services to the increasing number of tourists visiting the area. The town has its own General Store, Post Office, Hotel, Bush Camp, Take-away shop, 2 Service Stations, Caravan Park, Butcher, Primary School, museum and antique shops.
