Most of the northern part of Wilsons Promontory is classified as a wilderness zone. In order to preserve the area’s natural values there are few facilities and maintenance is kept to a minimum. Short walks can be undertaken at the key visitor sites of Vereker Outlook, Prom Wildlife Walk, Big Drift and Millers Landing.
Those after something a little more challenging may like to undertake an overnight hike to Tin Mine Cove or Five Mile Beach. Hikers must fill out an Overnight Hike Application form prior to commencing their hike. Only properly equipped,experienced hikers with significant experience in self reliant camping, navigation and remote hiking should attempt the hike to Tin Mine Cove. A Hiker Self Assessment form must be completed prior to commencing this hike.
There are four overnight hikers campsites on the northern wilderness:
- Barry Creek
- Lower Barry Creek
- Five Mile Beach
- Tin Mine Cove
These overnight hike campsite locations provide only a campsite with no visitor facilities/amenities. A true wilderness experience!
