What To Expect

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 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.

Traveller Tips

We needed to spend 6 to 7 hours in the bus and thus more comfortable seats could be helpful.

Amazing view

The scenery when climbing the mountain was so beautiful! Especially the view from the top of the mountain.
Lovely day at Wilson’s Promontory.

This was my first visit to Wilson’s Promontory. A beautiful area. Our driver / guide Eva made the day really enjoyable.

Lots of hiking/walking. Tour guide let us walk at our own pace which was nice for us older people. Scenery was absolutely beautiful. Quite enjoyed this tour.
Overall very good experience but bit rushed
Stay651788, Nov 2019
Overall it was very good experience. Beautiful views, nice walk to the top of mountain and then going down to the squeaky beach and beautiful view along the way. The driver cum tour guide, Terry, was very nice ,friendly and provided a lot of information during the tour. But, I believe it is bit rushed. We had to kind of race against time to complete all activities. Also, in the 21 seater vehicle the seats were not very comfortable. We needed to spend 6 to 7 hours in the bus and thus more comfortable seats could be helpful. Also, we went to the top of mount Bishop whereas some other tours go to the top of mount Oberon. From the pictures, it seems that the view from the top of mount Oberon is better than that of mount Bishop.

kate v, Apr 2018
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.

Milos M, Aug 2017
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!!!!!

Sabrina M, Apr 2017
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.

j_steeleuk, Jan 2016
The tour was a long day with a lot of driving but enjoyable all the same. We didn't do the climb to the top of the mountain as it was a very hot day. We visited the wetlands and rainforest instead which was interesting, but quite rushed. Too much time spent on the beach - one and a half hours. I would have preferred more walking at a slower pace to enjoy the surroundings, but each to his own. I think other people enjoyed the beach which was very beautiful.

reemshaf, Oct 2015
the place with great. but the tour guide has changed the plan of having the moutain tour at the last minutes becuase couple of people in the group thought that they could not do it , so instead of him splitting the group he decided to walk the whole group to another area, which was not really sepcial. many of the people in the group booked the tour mainly for the mountain hike to the top. we did a beach walk at the end of the tour which was part of the original schedule and that was very nice.

Jessica H, June 2015
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

Tour company were great in that they let me rearrange the date of the booking to better fit my schedule, was a good day out and the tour guide was great but expensive considering you're only paying for travel and a guide

Steven L, May 2015
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.

Michele S, Mar 2015
This was a great trip, with beautiful scenery. We saw plenty of wildlife including some wild kangaroos. Our guide was knowledgeable and friendly. Lunch was adequate, but there were opportunities to purchase snacks and beverages as well, so no one went hungry. I would definitely recommend this tour!

Kimberley P, Feb 2015
Hike was not very good. Others who don't hike so much may find it more appealing as it is a huge gravel path all the way up, then stairs. The view was great though. Was not advised that we would be stopping at the beach and no one brought a swimsuit. Would have liked to enjoy the water. The hike was not worth the 3 hour drive out in a cramped bus and 3 hours back.
