It was the 23rd December and I left Melbourne to go on a long road trip around the country...Wilsons Promontory National Park was my first stop and full of surprises!
With its mountainous landscape, beautiful bays and white sand dunes, Wilsons Promontory National Parkis an untouched wilderness. One piece of advice - from Squeaky Beach, head along the 1.5km track that leads to Picnic Bay. The beach is magnificent and quiet, apart from its resident animals...Indeed it was the only place during my tour of Australia where I was able to get close to a wombat in its natural habitat! A magical moment!
Once night fell, strange sounds kept me awake in my tent - the cries of the legendary kookaburras, delightful little birds that 'laugh'.
