3 Day Wilsons Promontory walk

Wilsons Promontory walk

A guided 3 day Pack-Free walk

At the southernmost tip of Australia lies the spectacular peninsula of Wilsons Promontory National Park. Covering over 50,000 hectares this National Park is a landscape of rugged granite mountains, lush rainforests, pristine beaches and stunning coastline. Fringing the coastline also lies the Wilson Promontory Marine National Park which protects a network of underwater rocky reefs, colourful sponge gardens as well as offshore islands that support colonies of fur seals and penguins.

This 3-day walk has been carefully designed so you can experience a range of landscapes in the National Park from the mountains to the sea. On land, you will enjoy a range of walking experiences discovering the spectacular landscapes of the north, west and east. We will also explore the Marine National Park by boat, to fully appreciate its beauty and grandeur.




A Pack Free Walking Experience

Walk with as little as your water and lunch

This walking holiday has been designed for those looking for a guided multi-day walking experience where everything is taken care of for you. Our guests won’t be asked to carry their clothes or overnight bags for the entire tour, as our tours are designed to be pack-free experiences. This is a big advantage for our guests, in that you will avoid carrying a heavy rucksack on your back every day. With Life’s An Adventure, you will carry as little as your water bottle,  camera and lunch.


The Yanakie House

2 Nights stay

Our guests will enjoy a two-night stay at The Yanakie House, located in Yanakie.

The Yanakie House offers modern accommodations with spectacular views of the Prom and Corner Inlet.

The superbly renovated house features four bedrooms and two bathrooms. Two bedrooms are fitted with queen beds, and the other two with two king singles each.

Additionally, the property includes two separate cabins for Single Supplements, each with its own bathroom. One cabin has a queen bed, and the other has a queen bed and a double sofa bed.

Waratah Hills Winery

Celebratory lunch day 3 after your walk

Cruise the Marine National Park

Our exra wow factor

Wilson’s Promontory’s Marine Park that fringes the National Park is just as impressive as the landscapes on land and certainly can’t be missed when visiting Wilsons Promontory. Our 2.5 hour cruise takes us to the southern point of the National Park along the way passing a multitude of pretty islands including the impressive Skull Rock. Look out for the Australian Fur seal colony that call this area home and at certain times of the year we may be lucky enough to see dolphins and migrating whales.

Afterwards, we walk from Darby River to Tongue Point and then on to Darby Saddle offering magnificent forest and coastal scenery.

3 Day Wilsons Promontory walk

TRAIL DETAILS: 10kms. 3 hours walking. Grade: Medium with hard section to Mount Bishop (optional).

ITINERARY: After breakfast, we head back into the National Park to enjoy a Prom Wildlife walk before joining our boat for a morning cruise to explore the spectacular protected Marine National Park of Wilsons Promontory. Our cruise takes us to the southern tip of Wilsons Promontory discovering small islands along the way including impressive Skull Rock. This area is home to an Australian Fur Seal Colony and it is always a delight to see them frolicking in the sea or lazing on the rock. At different times of the year, we may also encounter bottlenose dolphins and migrating whales. Afterwards, we commence our walk which takes us into the Promontory’s forested interior.  From Tidal River we make our way through one of Australia’s southernmost warm temperate rainforest listening out for the birdlife along the way. From here we ascend through stringybark forest to the summit of Mount Bishop. The views from the top, over the Prom’s coast and offshore islands, are simply breathtaking. Afterwards, we return to our accommodation for a wonderful dinner accompanied by local wines.

Meander through open banksia woodland and through forests of stringy bark, before heading up past the tower-like granite boulders on the ridge to Vereker Lookout.
