Wilsons Promontory

Shortly after its discovery by George Bass the sealers moved in followed by timber cutters and graziers, however Wilson’s Promontory has interested naturalists for a long time and it was the field naturalists club that led to the area being proclaimed a National Park in 1905.

All plants and animals in the park are protected making it a great place to access the natural habitats of echidnas, kangaroos, emus, and wombats. There is a great collection of birds including the crimson rosella, wattle birds, rainbow lorikeets as well as honey eaters and blue wrens.

The 3 hour drive down from Melbourne is far from boring travelling through rich farm land with magnificent views of the coast on the approach to ‘The Prom”
