We love hiking at Wilsons Prom. We love the beaches, the fantastic views and the huge bolders and isolated inlets like Refuge Cove.
We have hiked “the Prom” several times in the last few years, but have not had a chance to put up a post on Our Hiking Blog. This will change in a couple of months when Frank heads off down there for a wander around over a long weekend.
Wilsons Promontory National Park is 200km east of Melbourne. From the Parks Victoria website:
The southernmost point of the Australian mainland, Wilsons Promontory (affectionately known to Victorians as ‘the Prom’) is arguably the most loved national park in Victoria. Its 130 km coastline is framed by granite headlands, mountains, forests and fern gullies. Tidal River, 30 km inside the park boundary, is the focus for tourism and recreation. The park contains the largest coastal wilderness area in Victoria.
We came across a great post on Flo’s Blog… – with the subtitle (that we love) – to boldly go where I haven’t gone before describing a recent 5 day hike they completed at Wilsons Prom. We love these types of blogs. They are generally written to keep family and friends overseas informed of adventures that have occured while the “blogger” is visiting or travelling in Australia.
If you want to check out some great pictures, read some accurate information about the hike and just enjoy a good old hiking trip story, check out their post Wilsons Promontory – a 5 day hike. It might get you heading down there like Frank will be in late March!
