Wilsons Promontory National Park is an unspoilt, ruggedly beautiful park at the southern most tip of the Australian mainland. Wilsons Prom is a must see for anyone visiting Melbourne, if you have a little time up your sleeve to leave the metro area. It is approximately a 2.5-3 hour drive from Melbourne. The ‘Prom’ was all that we had imagined. Animals large and small like koalas, wallabies, echidnas, lizards, emus and birds of lesser stature were plentiful. There was plenty of bird life like Crimson Rosellas, Yellow Tailed Cockatoos and Black Faced Cormorants which we spotted as well.
