Wilsons Promontory National Park or 'The Prom' as it is affectionately known by locals is located on the most southerly point of the Australian mainland. This well loved patch of turf is admired for its 130 kilometre coastline of awe inspiring scenery framed by pristine wilderness. Prom country captures the essence of natural rugged beauty, tranquil bays and fascinating wildlife to uplift, educate and stimulate visitors with a long standing love affair with the outdoors. Encounter lush countryside, fern gullies and granite headlands in a natural wonderland brimming with hidden jewels amidst a visually spectacular backdrop. Explore galleries and museums, embark on a walking or cycling adventure, sample superb wines and abundant produce, restore vitality in spa and wellness retreats and walk in the footsteps of pioneers at Coal Creek.

Snake your way along one of the stunning scenic drives taking in the panoramic Grand Ridge Road and meander through the Strezelecki Ranges or Penguins to the Prom Touring Route taking in the ever popular Penguin Parade at one of 'The Prom's' closest neighbours, Phillip Island. For a shorter drive the Arawata Scenic Drive is a short 25 minute drive from Korumburra and Leongatha. There is an abundance of walking and cycling trails for the energetic ranging from easy strolls to challenging overnight expeditions.

Prom country takes in many townships with Coal Creek offering a delightful family day out flaunting the history of a once thriving coal industry in the area. Built on the site of an authentic black coal mine, the community boasts a museum where visitors can step back in time. Stroll along the beach while the sun sets at Port Welshpool and watch the fishing trawlers return from a busy day at sea. Stop along the port and marvel at the beautiful views of Wilsons Promonotory or simply loll in the surf.

There are loads of accommodation options throughout Prom Country but for those who wish to truly get back to nature there are campsites available at Tidal River with 484 campsites and a world of natural attractions at your fingertips.
