Wilsons Prom: 1

Those of you who are regular visitors here will have already worked out that one of my favourite places in Victoria is Wilsons Promontory National Park.  Generally just called The Prom it is splendid in all seasons - but because it is very popular I like it most in the winter when there are far fewer people around.

However, after being locked down - or at least restricted in movement - for much of last year, when I had the chance to go back to The Prom I took it.  Crowds be dammed! 

I actually booked onto a boat tour so I could have a look at The Prom from the sea, which is something I had never done before.

I arrived in good time and we immediately reminded of why I love the place!


After a short walk by Tidal River I went off to join the tour.  We were all given waterproof jackets - which were not the most tailored garments I have ever seen!  (By the way this is not me!)

The boats were parked on the beach, about 100 m from the ocean.  Once on-board we drove into the sea! It was rather strange.

Once out at sea the landscape of The Prom opened up for us.  It was great to look back at places I had only looked out from.

The last picture is of the southern most part of the Australian mainland - and (shockingly) it's called South Point!

 Not to be outdone, part of the state of Tasmania was also on show.  This is Rodondo Island, which is only 10km south of The Prom, but is part of Tasmania.  It is an uninhibited nature reserve.

There will be more pictures to follow!
You can find more pictures from around the world at Our World Tuesday and image-in-ing Cheers:  SM



  1. COVID willing, I will get there one day, Stewart!

  2. Very beautiful natural scenery in this Wilsons Promontory National Park ..., hopefully someday I can also go there someday.
    The waterproof jacket looks cute :)

    Greetings from Indonesia.

  3. Those boats remind me of ones that were in the Baltimore Harbor for a time. They could drive out to show you the town and then back in the water to see the city from the harbor. Amphibians? What beautiful pictures of a gorgeous place. Doubt we will ever make it to Australia so enjoy your blog.

  4. Looks like you had a wonderful outing on a wonderful day. Good on you, hope there's lots more in the near future.

  5. The sea and sky look to be in harmony there.

  6. Glad you got to go out again..I assume you've had a vaccine...Gorgeous park..It would be a favorite of mine if I had access to it..No such luck..Have a wonderful week..

    1. Hi there - no vaccine for me yet, we just have almost no cases in Australia. While we still have some restrictions on numbers of people at gatherings, and we have to wear a mask on public transport and at the supermarket, I think we are better off than most places in the world. SM

  7. Looks like a great day out. Not sure about the waterproofs :-)))) Keep safe Diane

  8. Lovely photos from a different perspective.
