Wilsons Promontory

Note: indicated routes are approximate. Use official topographic maps for navigation.

This is a four day walk around Wilsons Promontory National Park, the southern-most part of the Australian mainland. It's got a bit of everything - rainforest, heathland, Eucalypt forest, beach walking, ocean views, sheltered bays and a windswept western coast.

See the official park website for current conditions and more information. It's a fairly popular walk, so you need to book the campsites. When we did the walk (December 2016), there was no public vehicle access to Telegraph Saddle, but there were shuttle buses running between there and Tidal River.

On the track from Telegraph Saddle to Sealers Cove. There's a lot of boardwalk along the lower part of the track, which makes walking pretty easy - until this happens.

Last day
On the last day the wind was ferocious. We're at 39° south here - within a stone's throw of the legendary Roaring Forties.
