Penguins to Prom Touring Route

Famous animals and sacred spaces
210 km/130.5 miles, about 3 hours

Journey between two of Victoria's most loved tourist attractions - the Penguin Parade on Phillip Island and Wilsons Promontory National Park at the southernmost tip of mainland Australia.

You'll uncover much more than these two major sights as you wind your way through south Gippsland on this 200-kilometre drive. Detour along the Bunurong Coastal Drive for sweeping ocean views and unique rocky outcrops, wander along almost deserted rugged beaches, cast a line for a fish supper, or enjoy a counter meal in a typical country pub before you reach the breathtakingly spectacular Wilsons Prom.
