Departure Time

7:00 AM
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.

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.

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 :

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.

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.
