Wilsons Promontory National Park


Wilsons Promontory National Park covers the southernmost point of the Australian mainland and is a wonderland of granite headlands, mountains, wild beaches, forests and fern gullies.

The main campsite is Tidal River, 30km inside the park boundary, but there are smaller campsites around the park which can be accessed when doing multi-day walks.

Following European settlement, The Prom was used as a sealing station and army training base, amongst others. 


The southern half of the park is the best for bushwalking, with sensational views and a good balance of forest and open headland walking.


Main access is by road from Yanakie (via Meeniyan from the west or north and Foster from the east).  Many visitors choose to cycle in, so watch out for cyclists if you're driving.




A range of accommodation is available at Tidal River, including a large caravan/camping site and lodge/cabin accommodation.


Tidal River campground has unpowered sites from $18.50 per night for up to 3 people with one vehicle.


You can bring your caravan or camper trailer - powered sites for up to 8 people from $41.50 per night.  There is also a range of cabin accommodation, from budget to luxury.  See Parks Vic website for the most up-to-date pricelist.
