Three hours south east of Melbourne is the Wilsons Promontory National Park. Wilson's Promontory is the southern most tip of Australia and is affectionately known as 'The Prom'. It is one of Australia's most loved and well visited National Parks. Made up of 49,000 hectares of stunning coastline, rugged granite divides and over 700 species of plants have been discovered here. The beach at Norman Bay is safe for swimming. This is a great spot for camping and bushwalking.
There is accommodation but nature lovers will love the Prom. There are nearly 500 camping and caravan sites. Visit Squeaky Beach so-called bec au se of the sound you make as you walk its sands. There are hundreds of birds and plenty of koalas, wombats and wallabies. Snorkelling is allowed and has much to thrill divers. It's a great park for families.
This lighthouse sits on granite on the Southern tip of Wilson's Promontory. This walk is long, up to 38km and will take a couple of days. Rangers do conduct guided walks through here from October to May.
This is a good day walk and can be accessed from the Telegraph Saddle Car park, just out of Tidal River. this is a beach and rainforest walk, and you can rest up in the pretty cove before the return journey. Could take up to 5 hours for a return trip.
This is the Prom's only settlement and has basic facilities, as well as camping. Most of the park's beaches and walks are accessible close to this township. A highlight of the visit to Tidal River are the native wildlife that roam free here, including parrots, wombats and kangaroos.
