We had the most amazing 5 days at Wilson’s Prom, we booked a month before summer holidays so just took bits n pieces of remaining accomodation; a quiet campsite near Norman Beach, a Unit near Tidal river and by far best of all, the spacious Wilderness ‘glamping’ retreat with its own en-suite and shared kitchen/bbq’s. We have been to the prom a few times before, a long time ago with little kids, and in our 40’s we did the 4 day overnight including hike/lighthouse visit. But this time it was a mixture of exercise, comfort and relaxation. Each morning we hiked for a few hours before it got too hot, Tongue Point-Fairy Cove was our favourite, closely followed by Little Oberon and Oberon bay, though you need lots of bug spray to keep the March flies off you... and don’t wear blue! A Champagne Sunset at Whisky bay was wonderful, the sunrise hike to Oberon summit was strenuous and super windy but worth it for the view, and you definitely don’t want to miss an early morning adventure to the Big Drift sand dunes just near the Park entrance. We were lucky to have great weather and enjoyed a swim (or surf for my partner) at the end of each hike. And then could laze around and eat, drink, read for the rest of the day. We also had a fantastic time doing the boat trip out around the islands, which was interesting as well as an invigorating ride with lots of fun. All of the staff at the Prom were friendly and informative, and we found all visitors to the park and campgrounds to be respectful of others and nature. The shop at tidal river has the basics and some ice creams/take away food, there’s also fuel and a little supermarket at Yanakie just before you arrive at the park that is worth a stop if you’ve forgotten anything.

We had an overnight stay at the Prom during the Christmas Holiday. Since there are a lot of activities to choose from, we only made sure to do the Mt Oberon Summit hike, the Big Drift and go to the awesome beaches. The Prom is a must do experience when visiting Victoria. It is at least a 3 hour drive from Melbourne. You can do a day trip but I highly recommend to stay overnight to get the feel of the Prom experience. There are accommodations in the Tidal River within the Prom which are always booked out so planning early on is always a good idea.

I woke up early and realised that it was going to be a corker of a day...so I made my way to Wilson's Prom. It's a beautiful drive to the Prom... and arriving early meant I didn't have to contend with oodles of traffic... it might have something to do with the Covid regulations stopping people from coming out of Melbourne as well. Driving through the park makes me slightly nervous because the last time I visited I clipped a deer with my car. I don't believe the deer had any damage because it disappeared into the scrub ... but it shook me up. At the time I had been doing well below the signposted speed limit through the park of 80kph. There are so many walks to do ... so many naturally beautiful areas in this park that you could visit multiple times and find something new each time. Today I saw kangaroos and echidnas...but someone on one of the walks was lucky ( I suppose that depends on your definition) enough to see a snake. For people with mobility issues, there are some gorgeous lookouts...and it's still a lovely place to drive out to. It caters for all levels of fitness ... some hikes being difficult... others being achievable by people like me. :)
