What To Expect
The Wilsons Promontory or the "Prom" is undoubtedly being one of Australia's best-kept secrets! Join our Wilsons Promontory day trip from Melbourne and find yourself strolling along spectacular walking tracks, taking in panoramic views overlooking pristine white beaches and coastal forests! The Prom is home to an abundance of local wildlife, so don't be surprised to see up close the kangaroos, wombats, emus, and native Australian birds on our tour!
Our Wilsons Promontory day tour is all about wildlife, bushwalking, and stunning scenery! Wilsons Promontory National Park, or 'The Prom', as locally known, is the southernmost point of mainland Australia which contains the largest coastal wilderness area in Victoria. Surrounded by a protected marine national park, it is a nature lover's paradise!
We spend a total of three to four hours bushwalking and following spectacular walking tracks in the national park. We walk the short but gorgeous Lilly Pilly Gully rainforest walk and check out Tidal River. We step up our game with the Mt. Oberon summit walk, where you're treated to picture-perfect views from the top. Finally, we take on Mt. Bishop, a rugged and steep track to the summit with mind-blowing views.
We have a stop at Squeaky Beach, where the quartz sand really does squeak as you stroll between rolling surf and windswept vegetation. Besides it being fun to walk on, the beach is stunning with white sand, crystal-clear water, and awesome rock formations! On these scenic trails, we may come across kangaroos, wallabies, emus, wombats, and many other Aussie native birds so keep your eyes peeled and your camera ready!
