Overview

Highlights

Fondly known as ‘The Prom’, Wilsons Promontory is one of Victoria’s best loved national parks. Situated at the southernmost tip of mainland Australia, you will find spectacular scenery of granite mountains, native forests, rainforest, sweeping beaches and coastlines. From sun‐drenched summer beaches to secluded winter walks among rainforest, the Prom has something for everyone.

Visitors can camp, caravan or stay in huts, cabins, wilderness retreats or lodges at Tidal River where there is a general store and take-away food shop. Enjoy short walks along Norman Beach, Picnic Bay or Squeaky Beach and see a variety of wildlife including kangaroos, wombats and emus.

As with everywhere in Australia, please keep a safe distance from the animals and do not feed them.
