About
Wilsons Promontory National Park is the southernmost tip of mainland Australia. Walk remote coastal bushland trails and swim at pristine beaches dominated by granite tors. Camp in comfort at family-friendly Tidal River or hike to a more secluded campsite. Either way, the local wombats, kangaroos and emus are waiting to meet you. Swim at Norman Beach or one of The Prom's more secluded beaches. Go snorkelling for a unique underwater view of Victoria's largest marine national park. Scale the granite peaks of Mount Bishop or Mount Oberon for panoramic views, or enjoy an overnight hike. In the north there's a remote and rugged wilderness to explore, while the south is home to the historic Wilsons Promontory Lightstation and Sealers Cove.

    My wife and I drove here from the RACV Resort in Inverloch where we stayed for two nights during a recent holiday. We have been here many times over the years and visited this time specifically for a Boat Cruise with Pennicott Boat Cruises to see Skull Rock and other places from the Boat. We will return again next year, as this is one of our favourite places to visit in Victoria for hiking.

    OUT OF THIS WORLD!
    You little ripper! This place is stunning and the staff are fantastic to boot! If you're into hiking, boating, camping, fishing, cricket on the beach with your rig out, it really is the place to be! Recommend it to anyone who loves the outdoors! It's a true ridden gem of Victoria. One piece of advice for the general punters, is to respect the environment. Enough said.

    Unbeatable views. Terrible facilities
    The natural beauty of this national park is breathtaking. No question. Beautiful beaches , walks, views. Must visit. Completely let down by the facilities. Drop toilets are in use in some areas. The problem is the main carpark public toilets. They stink, are old and I'm yet to see anyone clean them. There's only two in the female toilet. And two showers . I walked in and walked out immediately. I went to the camp site toilets because they seemed cleaner but the smells of urine hits ya in the face. I don't know what's going on with sewage in this park. Completely let's down the experience visiting. Bring back entry fees so we can have better , cleaner, toilets.

    Outstanding beauty
    First off was amazed that there was no charge to enter this park for the day! We only had a few hours here, which is a shame as there was so much that could be seen and done, and I would love to come back and explore more. We settled on visiting squeaky and whiskey beaches, which were lovely, and then had some lunch at the Norman lookout point.

Worst experience and way overrated.
I want to go in 20 years and finally managed to do so using the Easter break
. Traffic getting there was horrible
. By entering and in in the visitors center we were told to leave if we hadn’t booked accomodation. Accomodation at that time was fully booked already months ago
. The place had place to accomodate at least another 2000 people to sleep but no. You had to book
. Prices were varying from $1000 a night to $60 for a simple sleeping bag tent
. At night the rangers said pack up and go or you will be given 380$ fine
Now about the natural wonders:
Outlooks and scenery good but not wow factor. Yoh can get the same from anywhere in Victoria
Beaches are nice not always suitable for swimming better and free if you head in the Anglesea part of Victoria
Too many stupid rules for visitors stay there
Never again!

This is a great place to visit for sun, beach, camping, nature and hiking. Perfect for nature lovers as it is pretty much unspoilt from over development.

Only had one night here but we stayed in the Tidal River Campground which was great, and has the visitor centre and a small general store there too. A great base for some hiking and we chose to do Lilly Pilly Gully & Mount Bishop. Even with the bad weather, we were lucky that this walk is fairly sheltered and the weather cleared enough for us at the summit. No rain whilst at the top and the clouds had cleared for enough time that we could enjoy the view. 14km in total for our whole hike from Tidal River Campground, but a great one at that. Keen to come back and explore the park more in the future with more time.
