On the way along the coast to Melbourne, another mandatory stop is certainly Wilsons Promontory NP or just ‘the Prom’. This big national park is only 250 km away from Melbourne and hence a popular holiday location. Moreover you can find there the southernmost tip of the Australian continent.
In the high season, beginning of January, the park, at least all its camping facilities, were full to burst and even on the walking trails it was quite busy. But on the one hand the park is big enough for the people to spread out and on the other hand the nice corners of this park are even with more people around a top destination on the tour from Sydney to Melbourne.
Besides tree ferns, dense forrest and beaches we got some more kangaroos in front of our camera and where accompanied by the loud noises of the cicadas.
Before visiting ‘the Prom’ we made a detour to Agnes Falls, which is just a short distance off the highway. As often, already 10 km off the main road there was a nice place for a picnic with a waterfall, that is of course even more impressing in the rainy winter season.
As usual you can also read this article with even more pictures on my travel blog.
