Melbourne Day Trips: Wilson's Promontory

Wilson's Promontary National Park is probably one of my favorite surrounding Melbourne destinations. At a 3 hour drive out of the city, and with so much to explore, you could easily extend a long daytrip to a overnight camping trip! I plan on returning and doing just that. There's so much to take in but here's the highlights of my day.

Hike to Oberon Summit: This hike is no joke! It is endlessly beautiful, but about an hour up to the summit itself. There are points near the end where the trail is extremely narrow/rocky so it's not for the faint of heart. At the top, covered in sweat you'll be rewarded with crystal clear views of the blue waters and forest below. Not to mention the forestry on the hike up is well worth it too!

Squeaky Beach: Named for it's pristine white sand, so pure, it squeaks when you walk on it. Listen for it, it really does! This was the perfect place to watch the surf, and take some golden hour photos. Australia's beaches are unlike anything else I've ever seen before. 

Spot the surfer!

I definitely plan on returning to Wilson's Promontary, as the park itself is huge and I only went to a handful of places inside. There are many trials that lead to hidden or secret beaches(about 10k or so) for the hiking enthusiasts. There is endless beauty in this place and I will definitely be back to capture it!
