Wilsons Promontory National Park is one of Victoria’s most popular parks, and arguably also one of the most beautiful national parks in Australia. It offers many great walks for all different fitness levels, as well as stunning vistas of pink granite boulder mountains, turquoise water and squeaky-white sand.
That is why we chose Wilsons Prom for our first-in-Australia overnight hike.
The whole idea was to check are we able to walk with food, water, tent and all other hiking things for 2-3 nights. If someone says ‘hey, guys, what are you talking about, it is easy!’, I’d like to remind him that we have a 9y.o. son who physically cannot carry 15+ kg backpack, but needs water and food as an adult (I am not saying that he need clothes, a sleeping bag and some other stuff as well). This basically meant that we, as parents, had to carry some of his belongings, as well as ours.
Again, this overnight hike was more a training hike rather that a real one. We successfully walked it from the Tidal River campsite to the Oberon Bay, returning next day back to the base camp via Telegraph Track.
