Overview

Highlights

Mount Oberon offers one of the best views in Victoria. Trek to the summit overlooking Tidal River and enjoy a 360-degree panorama of Wilsons Promontory. See unrivalled views of the Prom's spectacular landscape, from its pristine coastline and beautiful offshore islands, to its lush gullies and magnificent mountains.

Starting at Telegraph Saddle Carpark, the hike to Mt Oberon makes a steady incline as it weaves up the mountain. As you near the peak, a steep climb up steps will lead you to the rocky summit.

Standing 558m high, Mt Oberon offers incredible 360-degree views over Wilsons Prom. See sparkling turquoise water and picturesque islands scattered off the coast. Along the shore, spot the beautiful bays on Wilsons Prom’s western coast; Little Oberon Bay, Norman Bay, Leonard Bay, Picnic Bay and Whisky Bay. Enjoy scenic views over Tidal River Campground and trace the river as it weaves through coastal heath to the sandy shores of Norman Beach. Further inland, admire the rolling peaks of forested mountains.

Look south towards the southern-most tip of Australia's mainland, which is home to an abundance of native wildlife including wombats, emus, kangaroos and echidnas. Explore the southern section of Wilsons Prom on longer hikes if you get the chance.

The 6.8km return hike to Mt Oberon takes around two hours.
