The Prom is one of Victoria’s most-loved places.

At the southernmost tip of mainland Australia, it offers spectacular scenery of huge granite mountains, open forest, rainforest, sweeping beaches and coastlines.

Great bushwalks extend from under an hour to over three days. Visitors can camp, caravan or stay in huts, cabins, wilderness retreats or lodges at Tidal River where there is a general store and take-away food shop.

Wilsons Promontory Lightstation is perched on a small peninsula jutting into the wild seas of Bass Strait.

The waters surrounding the Prom are protected as a marine national park and marine park and offer outstanding diving.

Camping and accommodation

Tidal River is the main location for camping and accommodation in the park. Outside of defined peak season periods bookings can be made online

Advance bookings apply for selected holiday periods. Please refer to the following pages for details.

There are also many opportunities for overnight hikes.

Report sightings of Northern Pacific Seastars

Northern Pacific Seastars have been found in the Tidal River watercourse at Wilsons Promontory National Park, posing a major threat to Victoria’s marine environment. Read the information flyer for more details on how you can help.

Tidal River General Store

The Tidal River General Store provides a range of services including the the following:

  • A basic range of supermarket and emergency items, similar to a local milk bar/convenience store.
  • Cold and hot take away food, available to eat in or at picnic tables, similar to a small road house/fish and chip shop.
  • A small range of souvenirs and gifts.

While the store stocks a number of convenience items, it does not carry an expanded range of supermarket and camping equipment. South Gippsland has a number of large and small shopping precincts to cater for the broader needs of campers, and the Yanakie Store, approximately 30 minutes from Tidal River, sells fuel.
