One of Australia’s most spectacular national parks - and our best kept secret!
Towering cliffs, wild oceans, sparkling white sand beaches, abundant wildlife, rainforests, woodlands, half of Victoria's bird species and more than 30 species of native mammals make Wilsons Promontory an unbelievable natural experience.
This spectacular geological site was formed by a huge granite extending across what is now Bass Strait to north east Tasmania. It's been eroded over the millennia, creating fantastic landforms including mountain peaks, steep cliffs, enormous boulders, rocky outcrops and sweeping bays.
Affectionately known as "The Prom", it was declared a National Park in 1898. It was occupied by Aboriginal people at least 6500 years ago, but these links may to go back to ancient Ice Ages when it was a land bridge to Tasmania.
Right at the southernmost tip of mainland Australia, The Prom is a pristine environment of more than 50,000 hectares that's criss-crossed with walking tracks ranging from picturesque beach strolls to peaceful bush walks and challenging hike up mountain peaks.
A wildlife haven
The Prom's forests and sprawling bushlands are home to many native creatures, including kangaroos, koalas, wombats and emus. Walk quietly, and you may be rewarded by seeing these animals in their natural environment.
Wilsons Prom and its islands have been declared an Important Bird Area by Birdlife International, and are home to many bird species including thousands of migratory shearwaters, cormorants, plovers, brilliantly coloured cockatoos, honeyeaters, firetails and the flame robin (summer only). Birdsong is often a beautiful accompaniment to your bushwalks.
