Make your way through an array of delightful villages, as rolling green pastures transform into spectacular seaside vistas.
Be awed by Victoria’s largest coastal wilderness area in Wilsons Promontory National Park. Affectionately known as ‘The Prom’, it is one of the state’s best loved parks – and with good reason. This 50,000 hectare reserve is threaded with a labyrinth of walking tracks that showcase all manner of magical realms sheltering abundant wildlife.
Fall in love with the area’s many seaside towns such as Walkerville South, Yanakie and Toora. Charming villages are peppered throughout the area, boasting cafes, galleries and country hospitality, including Mirboo North, Foster, Fish Creek and Koonwarra.
Hidden within the rolling green hills of the Strzelecki Ranges, the meandering Agnes River cascades over rocks into a deep picturesque gorge. At 59 metres, Agnes Falls are the highest single span falls in Victoria.
