Overview

Spend a day immersed in the stunning scenery of Wilsons Promontory National Park on this full-day guided tour from Melbourne. Explore the white sandy beaches and lush forests of this historic coastal reserve along a series of scenic walking tracks.

  • Day trip to Wilsons Promontory National Park from Melbourne
  • Enjoy guided walks through the rainforest and bush
  • Spot Australian animals in their native habitats
  • Hear the singing sands of Squeaky Beach
  • Great panoramic coastal views
  • See the granite formations of Giant Rock
Wilsons Promontory National Park, known by locals as simply ‘the Prom,’ was designated a national park in 1898 and has been one of Victoria’s best-loved nature escapes ever since. Begin your full-day tour of this coastal wilderness with morning pickup at select Melbourne hotels or a central Melbourne meeting point. Leave the bustle of the city behind and relax on the approximately 3-hour drive to Australia’s southernmost tip, with stops to stretch your legs and purchase snacks along the way. 
Once inside the park, follow your guide along scenic beach, bush and forest trails to explore the Prom’s diverse landscapes by foot. Trails range from flat and leisurely to a moderately challenging uphill trek for panoramic mountain views. Make plenty of stops along the way to capture photos and soak in the peaceful surroundings. Be prepared to encounter many of the areas wild residents, including kangaroos, wallabies, wombats and emus.
From the shore, gaze off into the expansive Bass Strait that separates Australia from Tasmania and admire the granite cliffs of Giant Rock. Walk along the beautiful and aptly named Squeaky Beach, where the quartz sand seems to chirp and sing beneath your feet. 
Sit back and relax on the return drive to Melbourne, with a stop for dinner along the way (own expense). You’ll be dropped off back at your Melbourne hotel or original departure point in the late evening.

Fantastic experience but very rushed. Moderate walk up mountain but too hard because of the pace set. Alternative was easier but not as interesting. No time to stop and look at things. Continuous commentary on bus was like a uni lecture on history and failed to point out sights. Brochure did not mention swimming so did not bring towels etc. Could have swum briefly at Squeaky Beach. Did see everything though. Walk to Tidal River was amazing.

Perfect trip. I can recommend it to everybody.
you will see probably wildlife animals. We had luck to see kangaroo/wallaby, emu, wombat.
After simple uphill walk you will have beautiful look on beach, ocean, near small islands...
We were just small group of 20 people so it is also good for those who dont like crowds.
I can recomment this to everybody who want to see beautiful nature of australia and dont have possibility to go with own car, or dont know where can go.
Just take some lunch and water with you, because this is whole day trip and there is no time for stopping in restaurants :

Great Price awesome driver, so much information on the way and there. So much easier than driving yourself as you learn heaps and sit back and relax.
Extremely highly recommend!!!!!

If you don't have a lot of time then this tour is the perfect one day trip. You get to see a lot and it is an active day. If you are lucky you might spot some emus, wallabies or wombats. We had one long hike what I really enjoyed and the tour guide gave us the option to walk down to Squeaky Beach as well.
There is only something that bothered me about this tour. You spend about 5-6 hours on the bus and the seats are very uncomfortable.

It's a pretty good day out, does drag on a bit, Andrew the tour guide was very good. The views from on top of the mountain makes the trip worthwhile
