Located in a tranquil area of the campground within easy walking distance to the beach, Wilderness Retreats at Wilsons Promontory National Park provide a “close to nature” experience of bush camping with all the conveniences of modern cabins.

The Retreats sit on an innovative modular galvanised steel frame that does not require concrete footings. This is low impact accommodation that touches the earth lightly.
