Wilsons Prom Victoria
Wilsons Promontory Marine National Park extends along 70 kilometres of mainland coastline and covers 15,550 hectares, making it the largest of our Marine National Parks. It is located around the southern tip of the Wilsons Promontory National Park, incorporating the existing Wilsons Promontory Marine Reserve and is the most southern tip of Australia. It is an amazing and ancient place that has a powerful ambience, it tells a tale of history thousands of years old. By far the most amazing and awe inspiring feature is Skull Rock or Cleft Island, it rises 113mtrs out of Bass Straight and has a massive cave at least a hundred ft above the water line, it looks like it could fit a ten story hotel in it and came right out of a hollywood set.
The best way to see the Prom is by water, and by Jet Ski if you really want to discover all it has to offer. The ski’s can access smaller area’s with shallow water, but there are not many places to find refuge, apart from Refuge Cove and a small inlet west of the lighthouse. You will need to carry at least 20-30ltrs of extra fuel to make the journey from Port Welshpool out to the Lighthouse, then out to Cleft Island and back to port.
