Overview

Highlights

The famous white sand of Squeaky Beach is so named because of the noise it makes when you stroll along it. Enclosed by impressive granite boulders at either end of the beach, park locally or walk here from neighbouring Picnic Bay or Tidal River.

Take the family on a day trip to one of the best beaches in Victoria. Squeaky Beach is iconic for its squeaky white sand and turquoise water, earning it the title of the most photographed beach at Wilsons Prom.

Adults and kids will love making music as they walk along the dry sand, which makes a squeaking sound with every step. Why is Squeaky Beach squeaky? The fine, rounded grains of quartz sand compress under your feet, creating a high-pitched squeak.

Go for a swim in the clear water or catch a wave at this popular surfing spot at Wilsons Prom. Look out over the waters of Leonard Bay and see beautiful islands scattered off the coast.

To see more pristine beaches, follow the coastal track that winds its way over Leonard Point to Picnic Bay and on to Whisky Bay. Walk south to Pillar Point for panoramic coastal views out to Tidal River and Norman Bay and back to Squeaky Beach. This is one of the best walks at Wilsons Prom and is suitable for all levels, including strollers.

Squeaky Beach is extremely busy during peak season. The carpark is limited in size and fills quickly. Consider walking instead and enjoy scenic views along the walking track from Tidal River.
