The Wilson's Promontory national park is the southernmost national park on mainland Australia, known for its beaches, vegetation, rainforest and abundant wildlife. Here is located the southernmost point on the Australian mainland. There is a lighthouse on the southeast corner of Australia and has operated continuously since 1859. The park is highly popular, has a number of lodges and serviced camping areas near the mouth of Tidal River. The Australian indigenous were living here at least 6,500 years ago based on archaeological records, and the first Europeans arrived here in 1798. This National Park is home to a huge range of wildlife species, including kangaroos, wombats, emus, some marsupials, and a lot of species of birds. The Prom has a number of different hiking trails. There are trails of differing levels of difficulty, including day hikes ranging from short strolls using beach access ramps up to longer 2 or 3 hour walks. There are also several overnight hiking options which can be combined into larger circuit hikes from 2 days upwards. There are also multi-day hikes in the northern section of the park which require walkers to have good navigational skills. Hiking here is a really amazing experience and a must place to visit if you are near Melbourne. The landscape is so amazing and the views are unique. 100% recommend for people from all range of ages.
Perfect for the escape to nature. There are roads inside the park, but a lot of places require hiking to get to. Look up which hikes suit you before going as they range from a couple of hours to a few days. No petrol station inside the park so fuel up before entering. Grab a map at the entrance.
We went on the 11 AM 2.5 hour Pennicott cruise from Norman Bay on the Prom. It was a fabulous day, beautiful weather, 33 degrees, sea like a mirror. We saw many dolphins alongside the boat and in the distance, a magnificent, massive whale with calf very close to the boat. We had to float as they were coming close to us. The large colony of seals and furseals. Beautiful rocky coast and islands and of course Skull rock with the big cave, large enough for a symphony orchestra. Very good commentary as well. I can highly recommend the cruise when the weather is favourable.
This has been my favourite place since being in Victoria. Visited during a sunny winters day. Every beach we went to we had to ourselves and they were all stunning beaches. We saw a wombat and lots of other wildlife which was cool. Highly recommend this place, especially in the winter when the park is empty.
