How does one put the beauty of the Wilson's Promontory, (‘Wilsons Prom' to locals) into words? Wilson's Prom is Victoria's largest coastal wilderness area and most popular national park. It is crammed with magical landscapes and wildlife such as emus, seals, wombats, echidnas, rosellas and kangaroos.
The drive from the entrance at Yanakie to Tidal River settlement camping area is scenic with beaches and bushland easily reached by side roads. But the best way to enjoy the spectacular scenery is to walk amidst it on over 80 km of walking trails.
Walks not to be Missed
Wilson's Prom is also known for its wineries and food producers. If you'd like to treat your taste buds, follow the food and wine trail on the Food Map.
