Wilsons Promontory National Park

Mt Bishop offers unrivalled panoramic views of the west coast of Wilsons Promontory and its offshore islands. Trek through temperate rainforest and towering stringybark forest as you hike to the rocky summit. Scale the granite peaks and enjoy spectacular views from the lookout.
Weave among a variety of forest types as you hike up the slopes of Mt Bishop on this rewarding walk at Wilsons Prom. The track is easy-going in its early sections, but becomes more narrow and steep as you climb. Sturdy footwear is a must.

The challenging hike leads to the summit of Mt Bishop, where impressive granite boulders surround the peak. Take a break at the scenic lookout and enjoy breathtaking views over Squeaky Beach and Whisky Bay.

At 319m high, Mt Bishop is one of the best vantage points for incredible views of the Prom's coast and chain of islands scattered offshore. For a truly memorable hike, visit later in the day and watch the sunset over the sea and islands.   

As you hike back down the mountain, you can follow the same tracks back to the carpark or extend your journey and descend into Lilly Pilly Gully. Enjoy a pleasant walk through the tranquil and southernmost rainforest in mainland Australia before returning via the nature walk.
