Wilsons Promontory has been on our radar for a while now. Nestled 2 hours from Melbourne, this stunning National Park is a nature lover’s dream. Packed full of native wildlife, Rolling mountains and beautiful beaches there’s so much to see, do – and blog about!
We hopped in Martin and zoomed off in search of adventure.
It was a shame that the weather wasn’t as optimistic as we were. The dark clouds followed us from Melbourne, settling at the top of the mountains.
We even met some of the locals!
In a single clearing we spotted friendly wombats, emus and kangaroos.
After discussing the pros and cons of smuggling a wombat into the boot (they’re so cute!) we hopped back into the car and went in search of a hike.
This was the Australia we had been waiting to find.
After watching the sun sink into the sea, we bundled back into the car and headed to our accommodation for the night.
We whizzed passed the campsites and laybys we would ordinarily have called home and instead pulled into Waratah Lodge.
Ever since my disaster of a birthday, Ryan has been searching for the perfect birthday gift – and Waratah Lodge was just that!
Its elevated position offers brilliant views over the Prom and Waratah Bay, the hospitality is second-to-none and you can end the day like this.
