Wilsons Promontory National Park, or as the locals call it – Wilsons Prom, is a gem waiting to be discovered.

Located on the southernmost tip of Victoria, occupying a peninsula made of rugged, granite mountains and craggy cliffs, it’s a haven for nature lovers and wildlife enthusiasts alike.

Things to Do at Wilsons Promontory National Park

Stunning vistas of pink granite boulder mountains, turquoise water, and squeaky-white sand opened up before us as we drove into the park.

Check out Squeaky Beach

Squeaky Beach is just as good as the other Australian beaches and iconic highlights often spoken about; yes, it’s up there with places like Wineglass Bay and Whitehaven Beach.

Camp at Tidal River Campground

The campsite was very comfortable, and has hot showers and parking. They also have group lodges, self-contained cabins, and huts you can rent at various prices.

Look for Wombats

Wilsons Prom is a great place to see wombats in the wild, and you don’t have to look too hard to find them! You can also find emus and wallabies roaming around freely.

Hit the Hiking Trails

Wilsons Prom offers many great walks, for all different fitness levels. We enjoyed a walk around to the point from the campsite, with views over Norman and Squeaky Beach.

Explore Big Drift Sand Dunes

The best way to see the dunes is to walk. There is a 4.5km Grade 3 hike that takes you across the sand dunes, which takes roughly 2 hours to do. With each footstep, the dunes seem to come alive, and transform into a new landscape.
