Wilsons Promontory NP, Tidal River, VIC

At the southernmost tip of mainland Australia, Wilsons Promontory National Park offers spectacular scenery of huge granite mountains, open forest, rainforest, sweeping beaches and coastlines.

The Tidal River track follows the meandering south bank of Tidal River and allows people of all abilities and ages to sample the rich diversity of environments found in the area, such as estuarine wetland, lowland forest and rocky shore ecosystems. You will be able to spot a variety of birds, plants and possibly even a whale in the distance.

Start your walk on the Loo-Errn track from the picnic area in the carpark opposite the Visitor Centre. Alternatively, begin at First Ramp on the west end of 6th Avenue. The 2 -3 km trail takes approximately 1 - 1.5 hours.
