It’s also home to marsupials and emus, which you’ll possibly see while exploring spectacular trails on foot. This guided day trip from Melbourne includes a stop at Squeaky Beach.

What to expect
  • Wilsons Promontory National Park, known by locals as simply ‘the Prom,’ was designated a national park in 1898 and has been one of Victoria’s best-loved nature escapes ever since. Begin your full-day tour of this coastal wilderness with morning pickup at select Melbourne hotels or a central Melbourne meeting point. Leave the bustle of the city behind and relax on the drive to Australia’s southernmost tip, with stops to stretch your legs and purchase snacks along the way.  Once inside the park, follow your guide along scenic beach, bush and forest trails to explore the Prom’s diverse landscapes by foot. Trails range from flat and leisurely to a moderately challenging uphill trek for panoramic mountain views. Make plenty of stops along the way to capture photos and soak in the peaceful surroundings. Be prepared to encounter many of the areas wild residents, including kangaroos, wallabies, wombats and emus. From the shore, gaze off into the expansive Bass Strait that separates Australia from Tasmania and admire the granite cliffs of Giant Rock. Walk along the beautiful and aptly named Squeaky Beach, where the quartz sand seems to chirp and sing beneath your feet.  Sit back and relax on the return drive to Melbourne, with a stop for dinner along the way (own expense). You’ll be dropped off back at your Melbourne hotel or original departure point in the late evening.

Great if you can only do a day
Mar 2020
This was a great tour. A couple of hours drive with stops to the park followed by a really awesome hike (about 1.5 hrs including a little time at the top for photos). Then a trip to the squeaky beach (plus another good 40 min walk back to the camp site.

We had some time at the end to go to the old overgrown airstrip and got to see some wild kangaroos which was great.

Our guide was really knowledgeable and friendly the whole day.

If you're really into these kinds of parks staying a few days is probably worth it, but if you only have a day to spare this is a great tour!

Amazing day tour to Wilson’s Prom.
Joel was our guide for the day trip from Melbs. Pick up was on time and pick up driver very funny and entertaining. He dropped us off with Joel.
Joel’s a fantastic tour guide. He clearly loves what he does and loves his country. His enthusiasm and sense of humour is infectious. Top marks mate.
The day was very well organised and well thought out.
I’d rate the tour and Joel 10/10
Thanks for a great day out!

Great day! and so much more to say!
Feb 2020 • Solo
I did three different tours with this tour operator and I enjoyed all of them! Day schedules are quite dense and you are always busy discovering something new or being amazed by spectacular landmarks or wildlife! Guides did their best to show us the best corners and all the animals one could see in such conditions even if it meant for them to do an extra hour of work!

I would like to thank in particular Joel for his everlasting good mood which transforms a long road trip into a funny and enjoyable journey, and his fascination with local nature which becomes quite contagious :). I also appreciated that he was very attentive with every group member's needs (and especially with people with disability) and adjusted his suggestions accordingly. I would definitely like to do another tour with him!

Beautiful area, with amazing wildlife
Feb 2020
Picked up promptly from Melbourne Hotel, guide Chris was friendly and helpful giving relevant commentary where required . A full day with great walks in beautiful countryside, it was a good mix of beach and bush, finishing with a wildlife walk full of sightings of native wildlife. The whole tour was well run, but relaxed and casual. Everyone was out at their ease and the small group meant a more personal service. Excellent tour would recommend highly. The only downside was the weather but the guide made the best of this, arranging the itinerary accordingly.

Awesome day at the prom
My husband and I went on the day trip to Wilson’s Prom on 24th Jan. Had such a great day. Our guides were Yaz and Alex who were both awesome! Massive thanks to them both. A great mix of information and fun along the drive, and they looked after us well making rest stops and refilling water bottles as needed. Walked up to the top of Mt Bishop and the views were incredible, well worth the uphill walk. Highlight of the day for us was the wildlife walk, to see kangaroos and emus in the wild was just amazing. The Prom is beautiful and has largely been left untouched, a real taste of nature as it should be.

Awesome sights!
We saw the prom and it was worth the hike. Hub survived carrying the little one. So yes, you can do this with a baby. We also saw kangaroos, wombats and emus out in the bush. Our guide Cloe was warm and knowledgeable. Totally recommend if you don't wanna drive.

Amazing tour of Wilsons Prom with the fabulous Emily
Jan 2020 • Solo
I took the tour Wilsons Promontory and it definitely exceeded my expectations.

Big thanks to Emily, who I could listen to all day talk about this wonderful country. She made sure everyone was comfortable throughout the day and that we had enough time at each site. I was on my own but didn’t feel like that at all. Everyone got on so well, thanks to Emily.

A wonderful place to visit and probably my favourite. The beauty is out of this world, even on a dull day.

Thanks again for a fab tour. Best of luck for 2020 ☘️

For those that love hiking and great views!
Nov 2019
Email communication with Bunyip tours before trip, they told me there would be three hikes and duration of each, but not the distance.

Punctual pickup

Cramped 24 seater tour bus (but it’s the same with all other tour companies)

Punctual departure from city

Good, regular toilet breaks every 60-90mins en route

Stopped in small town to buy packed lunch and for a morning coffee (both at own cost), could buy from coffee shop or small supermarket with limited options. It’s therefore advisable to bring your own lunch if you have specific dietary concerns

Hiked 7.2km return to Mount Bishop, uphill. Or option of flat Lilly Gully walk 2km.

Own packed lunch at top of Mount Bishop with beautiful views of Squeaky Beach.

Squeaky Beach and sandy Tidal River hike 3km, mild uphill. Saw wombat, snakes, rosella birds.

Prom Wildlife walk 2.5km but we only walked 1km and saw a wallaby, more than 20 kangaroos, emus, wombat.

Back to Melbourne at 9pm, as I was one of the last stops. No dinner en route back to Melbourne.

Definitely 5* for our enthusiastic guide Cloe.

Nice tour
We went Mt. Bishop, squeaky beach and wildlife walk. It was really cozy to walk in the sun and cool weather, the scenery on the top of mt. Bishop was spectacular. We were lucky to see many animals, and really lucky to have a close look to the wombat on the path of tidal river. Cloe was the guide, energetic, interesting and professional. Highly recommend this tour!
