5. Cape Wilson

Wilson's promontory is the ideal base for a prom and is an ideal place to spend a long weekend in the summer. Unspoiled beaches await you, tropical forests and Wild Animals. The national park is located in Gippsland, It's about 157 km from Melbourne. Thanks to a series of secluded beaches, which can only be accessed on foot or by boat, Tourists can explore paradise, called Wilsons Prom – Place, Where the mountain meets the sea.

It will take you three days and two nights to travel. And just a maximum of two nights in a row are offered by all campsites, located within the National Park.

Start from Telegraph Saddle, then follow the path to Seilers Cove, bay with the clearest turquoise water to the tent camp. Don't forget to check the high tide time, as you will need to cross Seilers Creek to get to the campsite, which reaches up to 1,5 m deep at high tide.

The campsite provides only basic amenities such as raw water and composting toilets.

After spending the first night there, continue to Little Waterloo Bay, where you can also camp for the night.

On the third day, you can take a short off-road route back to Telegraf Saddle, but if you have enough time, it is better to take a more scenic route to the Tidal River.

In any case, you will remember this trip for a long time, and tell your descendants about it!
