Wilsons Promontory

Affectionately known as 'The Prom', Gippsland's Wilsons Promontory National Park is one of Victoria's largest coastal wilderness areas and is jaw-droppingly spectacular.

One of the state's best loved parks, The Prom's 50,000 hectares feature a labyrinth of walking tracks that showcase all manner of magical realms sheltering abundant wildlife.

Whether camping or living it up in contemporary cabins you'll be surrounded by a visual feast of tranquil rivers, intimate coves, granite mountaintops and lush, forested valleys. Secluded beaches, cool fern gullies and spectacular rock formations are all waiting to be discovered.

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.

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.

Wilsons Promontory is approximately 210 kilometres from Melbourne, or two hours and 40 minutes by car along the M1 and the South Gippsland Highway.
