3 Day Wilsons Promontory walk

Wilsons Promontory walk

A guided 3 day 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. Whilst at sea we will explore by boat to fully appreciate the beauty of the Marine National Park.

We cruise to the southern tip of Wilsons Promontory discovering small islands along the way including impressive Skull 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.

Meander through open banksia woodland and through forests of stringy bark, before heading up the tower-like granite boulder ridge to Vereker Lookout to take in awe-inspiring views over the northern section of Wilsons Promontory. From this location, you will be rewarded with magnificent views of Darby Saddle, Yanakie Isthmus, Shellback Island, Corner Inlet and Cotter Beach and much more.
