Welcome to Wilsons Promontory National Park


Tidal River, 30km from the park entrance, is the hub, home to the Parks Victoria office, a general store, a cafe and accommodation, but there's no fuel here. The wildlife around Tidal River is incredibly tame, but to prevent disease, don't feed the animals or birds.

The Brataualung clan from the Gunai and Kurnai nation are the traditional custodians of this land.
