What You Can Expect

Wilsons Promontory Day Trip from Melbourne

Wildlife

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.

Amazing tour. Wilson Prom is beautiful and this is like the only day tour to take you to see the wonders of Wilsons Prom! Would highly recommend to anyone who is near Melbourne and wants a day out of the city to do some hiking and see some wonderful views

A good tour well presented by our guide. Travel is by minibus rather than coach and slightly less comfortable. It's a long day with considerable walking including up a mountain so fitness and good shoes are required. The Promontory offers close-ups of local wildlife roaming free including wombats and stunning views from the top of the mountain that you climb for lunch.

Great tour! I was very satisfied and amazed with this tour. Hike up to Mt.Oberon Summit was a bit challenging but the view is definitely worth it. A stop at Nelson's beach and Squeaky beach was gorgeous. And then a stop to view kangaroo's, emu's, and wombats in the wild was definitely a highlight!! Would definitely recommend this trip! Tour guide, Macca, was also very easy going and knowledgable.
