Wilson’s Prom is one of Australia’s best-kept secrets: a national park that boasts huge granite mountains, lush-green rainforest and sweeping beaches and coastlines.

Its location, 3 hours southeast of Melbourne, puts it firmly off the beaten track, making it particularly appealing to those looking for hidden gems.

Love walking? Get ready for some of the greatest bush walks in Australia. Trails extend from under an hour to over three days, with some spectacular views of the coastline.

Hike up to Mount Oberon for picture-perfect, panoramic views over Tidal River, the coast and offshore islands. It really does make for a STUNNING photo opportunity (perfect for those Instagram snaps) and the walk isn’t too difficult.

Looking for a more relaxing holiday? Spend the day on Squeaky Beach (our personal fave), Norman Beach, Picnic Bay or Whiskey Bay. You are literally spoiled for choice!
