Wilson’s Promontory is a secluded coastal park in Victoria. It contains the Southern most tip of the Australian continent, a 2 day walk from the small town of Tidal River. Squeaky Beach is famous for its volcanic crystal sand that makes a unique ‘Squeak’ when you walk across it.
My brother Glenn flew into Sydney from Melbourne on Thursday. Paul, another brother, and Glenn’s identical twin, (I actually have three brothers that are all exactly 16 months younger than me) is getting married in Melbourne on Saturday week. I’m driving there, and Glenn decided to come along for the trip…(The LONG way from Blackburn to Brighton!)
We set off from my home in Kogarah on Friday morning, stopped in Canberra briefly to discover they no longer sell fireworks, then arrived at our first stop at Perishier Blue, a ski resort atop the Snowy Mountains. We stayed in a nice place on the snow. We spent all day Saturday on the slopes, then after a big night at the pub got up on Sunday morning, chiseled the ice off the car and continued on to Melbourne.
We stayed away from the normal highways, cutting directly South, finally hitting the Victorian coastline at Bairnsdale. We then followed the Princes highway, until we arrived at Wilson’s Prom just before sunset.
I took the above picture at Squeaky Beach, near the main outpost of Tidal River.. the below shot was taken just after sunset.
Despite living in Melbourne for 20 odd years this is the first time I have ever set foot on the Prom… although I have flown over it once (including the lighthouse at South East point) with one of my brothers. I will put the aerial pictures from that day up soon and link them to this page…
