FYI: this trip was actually to help in T’s healing. Sightseeing was just secondary. Aside from the fact that this was the longest holiday I’ve ever had in my whole life, I think. It was always, study, work, study, and work or just work for me. As we probably all know, adulthood is stressful. So, this break was actually quite good for me as well, to somehow quieten my mind for a bit. Also, this was my first time traveling and living in a caravan. It didn’t disappoint.
So, Wilsons Promontory was our first stop and it never fails to amaze me. Our first two nights there were ok. There were issues here and there, but generally, we came to the conclusion that we could actually live in the caravan. We still had a lot to learn about caravaning but this was definitely a lifestyle we could get used to.
Wilsons Promontory’s always been in my Top 10 places to visit in Victoria. Been there a couple of times now, but there were still a lot of spots to explore. Time is never enough at Wilsons Prom. It’s definitely going to awaken the adventurous spirit in you. For this trip, we ticked Norman Beach, Loo Err boardwalk track, and Mt. Oberon.
- Norman beach was where Tim swam in the cold. The waves were pretty strong and the water was cold. I couldn’t do it.
- Loo Err Boardwalk track was an easy walk by the river. We even saw people being pushed in a wheelchair. WP truly has activities suitable for anyone’s fitness level. 💙
- Mount Oberon was also quite an easy walk up to the summit. The view up there was spectacular! Almost 360′ of ocean and hills. Amazing! This is a must-see weather-permitting!
Where did we stay?
Tidal River campsite: Unpowered sites were unallocated when we visited. So we could choose where we want to park. We found a good space 200m on a hilly trail away from the toilet and shower, camp 445. It was good and quiet. The sound of the ocean was calming. Loved it!
