Little Oberon Bay Walking Track (Norman Point to Oberon Bay) Closed

Little Oberon Walking Track is closed between Norman Point and Oberon Bay until further notice due to significant erosion to the track. 
Oberon Bay Campsite is only accessible via Telegraph Saddle Walking Track until further notice. 

Stockyard Campground Closed

Stockyard Campground closed to campers. Bookings for camping at Tidal River can be made online.

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.

Ground shooting operations targeting deer

Ground shooting operations targeting deer will be undertaken in these Parks from December 2022 to June 2023.
 
Some access restrictions may apply. Please observe local signage.
