Walking Tour in Wilsons Promontory, Australia


Join us to explore one of Australia's most outstanding National Parks, Wilsons Promontory. "The Prom", so called by its many admirers, is the most southerly point of mainland Australia. The park encompasses magnificent coastal and mountain scenery.

Over 700 species of native plants exist, providing a perfect habitat for the prolific wildlife. Kangaroos, koalas and wombats are just a few of the many native inhabitants. Emus, rosellas, kookaburras and cockatoos can be seen almost everywhere.

The only way to experience the Prom is on foot. Our walk highlights some of the park's most beautiful areas. We pass through a variety of vegetation from bush to luxuriant, moist fern gullies. These harbour magnificent white sandy beaches, washed by spectacular rolling surf.

On our first day we stop near Phillip Island and discover the newly established George Bass Coastal Walk near Kilkunda. Our second day is spent at Wilson's Prom NP where we walk to Pillar Point, Squeaky Beach, Picnic Beach and Lilly Pilly Gully.

Day 3 we discover the secluded Cape Liptrap Coastal Park not far from where we are staying. Day 4 we venture back into The Prom and walk out to spectacular Tongue Point.

On our final day we have a leisurely start before driving to Lyre Bird Hill Winery for our final celebratory lunch.

Guided Walking HolidaysA wonderful introduction to the Prom and associated region. Graeme's knowledge and passion for this area was evident throughout and it made our experience highly memorable. A wonderful adventure made all the more so by Graeme's attention to detail with a laid-back approach that made us all feel like a member of a family. Fantastic!"

Guided Walking HolidaysA wonderful few days walking along the coast on Wilsons Prom. Great Accommodation, wonderful sightings of wildlife including a koala looping across open lawns in front of our cottage, an emu that was not fased by the van coming up beside it and birds that were identified by those who knew. All meals were impressive and how delightful it was to have in house dining at night after our ramblings. Thanks to Graeme for his constant vigilance for some who were not as fit as others.

Guided Walking HolidaysWilsons Prom is a magical place. The coastline is beautiful and the wildlife was wonderful to see. Graeme was a great guide with local knowledge. The group were fantastic and our stay in Walkerville peaceful. The holiday was great for the soul.

Guided Walking HolidaysThe Prom is undoubtedly one of the best places for bush walking in Australia. The walking tracks we explored ranged from smooth easy strolls to steady climbs and descents, but breathtaking scenery is all around you. Bass Strait was in a benign mood and we experienced beautiful sunny days, blue skies, calm seas and crystal clear water around the granite coastline, framed by rugged headlands, with massive boulders strewn in between. Squeaky Beach is pristine and many of the nearby beaches and coves are largely uninhabited. We encountered squally rain on our walk from Darby Saddle to Sparkes and Lookout Rocks but the temperature was mild and the windblown mist added another dimension to the overall experience. A great place to wind down and immerse yourself in nature and good company. Highly recommended.

Guided Walking HolidaysThanks for a fabulous and well-managed tour of Wilson's Prom and surrounds, Graeme. Spectacular views, varied walks, refreshing swims on hot days, good company and plenty of laughter. The Nordic and Swiss tours look pretty special - definitely earmarked for future consideration!
