Winter In Wilsons

Winter is a great time to escape and explore Wilson’s Promontory. Without all the crowds it's the perfect time to see all the sights but make sure you rug up. Remember there's no such thing as bad weather, just inappropriate clothing! The weekend was wet and wild but that wasn't stopping us from getting amongst it and created some unforgettable memories. The coastline in this part of the world is rugged with granite rock formations, wild bushland, white sandy beaches and the oceans filled with brilliant blue hues. After a solid day of exploring it was a real treat to come back to a steamy outdoor bath and a fully stocked fire. A complimentary bottle of port and a block of chocolate waited patiently for us after a delicious dinner. Candle light conversations by the fire wrapped up our evening.

A beautifully styled and welcoming space. It is central to explore all the goodness that Wilsons Prom provides. Comfy beds with a cosy fireplace and an outdoor bath all help to relax and unwind. A kitchen with all the essentials to cook your own meals and don’t worry, yes, they have coffee, real coffee. Italian press, stove top style. The house is full of cook books, design books and an inspirational guide book to Walkerville and surrounds best kept secrets.

Wilson’s Promontory
From the moment, we passed the entrance we immediately saw an abundance of wildlife – roos, wombats, kookaburras, emus, rosellas and kangaroos. The drive to Tidal River showcases the epic granite mountains, rock formations towering from the bushland and white sandy beaches. We explored Whisky Bay, Squeaky Beach and Tidal River. But there is so much more to see if you have the time!...
Cape Liptrap Lighthouse
We arrived shortly before sunset. With beautiful views from the point across the coastline and down to Walkerville. The walk from the carpark to Cape Liptrap lighthouse is super short, flat and easy....
Pandesal Bakery
A true slice of country Australia with a delightful and delicious little bakery that came through with great coffee and tasty treats to get our day started right. There's also a wonderful organic and local produce store down the street to stock up on veggies and a cheeky vegan caramel slice or two. A cute variety of homewares stores to explore, with coffee in hand, was a nice way to spend the morning....
The Meeniyan Store
The lady at the local general store provided us with a wealth of knowledge of the local area and a good soy latte to start our day. We drove along the coastline and explored the beautiful local beach....
Shell Service Station
If you need to fuel up, roll along to the local Shell service station a say G'day to Bob. He's a real Aussie gem. He’s owned the station for over 50 years. If you’re looking for a little insider info, he’s your man!...
