  • Notices Affecting Multiple Sites

    Sealers Cove Walking Track closed until further notice

    Wilsons Promontory National Park experienced widespread damage due to several flood and storm events in 2021. This significantly damaged many tracks including the Sealers Cove Boardwalk.  A detailed engineering assessment found that the entire two kilometres of the Sealers Cove Boardwalk will need to be replaced. Planning is underway for this work, including costing the work to secure funding. Due to the extent of the damage, and complexity of the work required, Sealers Cove Walking Track will be temporarily closed. 
    Access to Sealers Cove is still achievable via Refuge Cove, which is a 25km hike from Telegraph Saddle.
