Overview

The Prom as it is known to many people, is one of Victorias most loved and cherished natural attractions. Located at the southernmost region of mainland Australia, this wildlife haven will inspire and intrigue even the most discerning traveller, with its panoramic views, pristine white beaches, coastal forests, cool climate rainforests and well-preserved walking tracks.

The prom is home to many marsupials, such as kangaroos and wombats, native birds and other native animals such as emus, which with a bit of luck you are able to see up-close. The best way to explore the Prom is on foot, so you will no doubt enjoy your stroll along some spectacular tracks and be entertained by the pure white quartz singing sands of Squeaky Beach. An opportunity is available to enjoy either a rainforest walk at Lilly Pilly Rainforest or amazing panoramic views offered on the Verekers Outlook track, or Mount Bishop track (easy to medium graded walks).

Know More about this tour

Affectionately known as The Prom, Wilsons Promontory National Park is one of Victorias most loved and cherished natural attractions. Situated at the southernmost point of mainland Australia, the promontory has been a national park since 1898 and contains the largest coastal wilderness area in Victoria.

As the best way to explore the park is on foot, you will be guided along some spectacular easy- to medium-graded tracks. Youll have plenty of opportunities to take photos and, if youre lucky, you may get up-close views of kangaroos, wombats or even emus.

Walk along Squeaky Beach, where the pure white quartz sand sings under your feet. Soak up the amazing vistas and beauty of the region.

    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.

    This was a great tour. A couple of hours drive with stops to the park followed by a really awesome hike (about 1.5 hrs including a little time at the top for photos). Then a trip to the squeaky beach (plus another good 40 min walk back to the camp site. We had some time at the end to go to the old overgrown airstrip and got to see some wild kangaroos which was great. Our guide was really knowledgeable and friendly the whole day. If you're really into these kinds of parks staying a few days is probably worth it, but if you only have a day to spare this is a great tour!

    I did three different tours with this tour operator and I enjoyed all of them! Day schedules are quite dense and you are always busy discovering something new or being amazed by spectacular landmarks or wildlife! Guides did their best to show us the best corners and all the animals one could see in such conditions even if it meant for them to do an extra hour of work! I would like to thank in particular Joel for his everlasting good mood which transforms a long road trip into a funny and enjoyable journey, and his fascination with local nature which becomes quite contagious :). I also appreciated that he was very attentive with every group member's needs (and especially with people with disability) and adjusted his suggestions accordingly. I would definitely like to do another tour with him!

    Joel was our guide for the day trip from Melbs. Pick up was on time and pick up driver very funny and entertaining. He dropped us off with Joel. Joel’s a fantastic tour guide. He clearly loves what he does and loves his country. His enthusiasm and sense of humour is infectious. Top marks mate. The day was very well organised and well thought out. I’d rate the tour and Joel 10/10 Thanks for a great day out!

    Brilliant place, beautiful beach, great walking. Wild and free environment. Love the kangaroos, wallabies, emus,wombats and lizards.

    Picked up promptly from Melbourne Hotel, guide Chris was friendly and helpful giving relevant commentary where required . A full day with great walks in beautiful countryside, it was a good mix of beach and bush, finishing with a wildlife walk full of sightings of native wildlife. The whole tour was well run, but relaxed and casual. Everyone was out at their ease and the small group meant a more personal service. Excellent tour would recommend highly. The only downside was the weather but the guide made the best of this, arranging the itinerary accordingly.

    My husband and I went on the day trip to Wilson’s Prom on 24th Jan. Had such a great day. Our guides were Yaz and Alex who were both awesome! Massive thanks to them both. A great mix of information and fun along the drive, and they looked after us well making rest stops and refilling water bottles as needed. Walked up to the top of Mt Bishop and the views were incredible, well worth the uphill walk. Highlight of the day for us was the wildlife walk, to see kangaroos and emus in the wild was just amazing. The Prom is beautiful and has largely been left untouched, a real taste of nature as it should be.

    We saw the prom and it was worth the hike. Hub survived carrying the little one. So yes, you can do this with a baby. We also saw kangaroos, wombats and emus out in the bush. Our guide Cloe was warm and knowledgeable. Totally recommend if you don't wanna drive. #bunyiptours #theprom #melbourne

    I took the tour Wilsons Promontory and it definitely exceeded my expectations. Big thanks to Emily, who I could listen to all day talk about this wonderful country. She made sure everyone was comfortable throughout the day and that we had enough time at each site. I was on my own but didn’t feel like that at all. Everyone got on so well, thanks to Emily. A wonderful place to visit and probably my favourite. The beauty is out of this world, even on a dull day. Thanks again for a fab tour. Best of luck for 2020 ☘️
