What you can expect

The best coastal views and mountain vistas are waiting to be discovered on this Wilson Promontory guided hiking day tour from Melbourne. Along the way enjoy the best local coffee and spectacular scenery as you drive to Wilsons Prom. This day tour is perfect for nature lovers who will be taken on two hikes to 'The Big Drift' sand dunes and Mt Oberon where the uphill track leads to breathtaking coastal views.

Our next stop is Tidal River where you can purchase a cheeky ice cream (don’t worry, you’ve earned it) before we head to Squeaky Beach. Here you can wander on the incredibly white rounded grains of quartz which make a squeaking sound giving this popular local beach its name.
