Wilsons Promontory National Park
Welcome to Wilsons Prom, the southernmost tip of mainland Australia. Walk remote coastal bushland trails and swim at pristine beaches dominated by granite tors. Camp in comfort at family-friendly Tidal River or hike to a more secluded campsite. Either way, the local wombats, kangaroos and emus are waiting to meet you.
Swim at Norman Beach - just a few minutes' walk from Tidal River Campground, or go snorkelling for a unique underwater view of Victoria's largest marine national park. Bring the family and camp in comfort at Tidal River. Choose from powered or unpowered sites or stay in roofed accommodation.
Scale the granite peaks of Mount Bishop or Mount Oberon for panoramic views, or enjoy an overnight hike in The Prom. In the north there's a remote and rugged wilderness to explore, while the south is home to the historic Wilsons Promontory Lightstation and Sealers Cove.
Feel the sand between your toes at some of the more secluded beaches of Wilsons Prom, from Cotters Beach to Whisky Bay and Fairy Cove. Check out Big Drift, an impressive inland sand dune system, one of the Prom's well kept secrets. You can book a free all-terrain wheelchair, TrailRider or beach wheelchair to explore the great outdoors at Wilsons Promontory National Park.
There will be a limit on the number of visitors permitted into the park at any one time. Once capacity is met, entry to the park may be temporarily halted to manage visitor numbers. Parks Victoria staff will be at the park entry during anticipated peak times to assist visitors and monitor vehicle numbers. For more information, please visit our COVID-19 Update page.
A range of walking opportunities are available to day visitors of all ages and fitness levels, taking in pristine beaches, temperate rainforest, towering sand dunes or lookouts offering spectacular panoramic views.
Most of the northern part of Wilsons Promontory is classified as a wilderness zone. In order to preserve the area’s natural values there are few facilities. If you don't want to stay overnight, there are short walks at Vereker Outlook, Prom Wildlife Walk, Big Drift and Millers Landing.
Offering magnificent views over Darby Swamp, Vereker Range and Darby Beach, The Darby River to Tongue Point Walk climbs an ancient sand dune before following the weathered headland towards Tongue Point.
A nice alternative to the often-busy Tidal River, Stockyard Campground hides away among eucalypts and banksias near the Wilsons Promontory National Park entrance. Pitch a tent and discover all Wilsons Prom has to offer – from a walk out to the Big Drift to beach days at Whisky Bay, and everything in between.
Tidal River offers self-contained cabins, units, huts, group lodges and Wilderness Retreats.
Perched on a small peninsula jutting out into the wild seas of Bass Strait, the Wilsons Promontory Lighthouse and its historic residences are the southernmost settlement on the Australian mainland. Adding to its remote appeal, the lightstation is only accessible by foot, along the Southern Prom Circuit Hikes.
