Victoria, Wilsons Promontory

Today let’s speak about a jewel on the Victorian coast line, Wilsons Promontory.


Ideal for camping and hiking, with friends or family,  Wilsons Prom’ is a peninsula that forms the southernmost part of the Australian mainland. And because most of the peninsula is protected by the Wilsons Promontory National Park, you will have the opportunity to easily observe the wildlife, including: Kangaroos, Wombats, Wallabies, Koalas and Emus.

Along the coast or into the land, enjoy a leisurely walk or push yourself and take the road less travelled thanks to the many hikes of varying difficulty (more info on

If you can stay over for a few nights, there are showers and toilet facilities and it’s pretty clean. BUT make sure you call the national park rangers before departing because you may have some difficulty accessing the park, especially in summer or public holidays!

Finally, you can’t leave the park without stopping at the picturesque squeaky beach! Soft ‘squeaky’ sand meets the powerful ocean at this beautiful little known beach. It’s worth it!
