Wilsons Promontory

Be awed by Victoria's largest coastal wilderness area in Wilsons Promontory National Park. Affectionately known as 'The Prom', it is one of the state's best loved parks – and with good reason. This 50,000 hectare reserve is threaded with a labyrinth of walking tracks that showcase all manner of magical realms sheltering abundant wildlife.

Camping
Stay under canvas or in contemporary cabins. Either way, you'll be surrounded by a visual feast of tranquil rivers, intimate coves, granite mountaintops and lush, forested valleys. Discover secluded beaches, cool fern gullies and spectacular rock formations.

Wildlife
Wilsons Promontory is a refuge for an array of native wildlife including kangaroos, emus, wombats, echidnas and vividly plumed birds like rosellas. These gregarious creatures flock to anyone with a palm-full of seed, especially around the visitors area at Tidal River.

Scenic trails
The drive from the entrance at Yanakie to Tidal River settlement is scenic and is well-signposted, with car parks, beaches and bushland accessible via side roads. However, the best way to enjoy the spectacular scenery is on one of the many walking trails throughout the peninsula.
