Hard track
The Sealers Bay Track, Wilsons Promontory, starts near the Telegraph Saddle Car Park, on Wilsons Promontory Road, navigating through the mountains to Sealers Cove and back. Embark on a journey through rocky peaks, unique flora, tropical settings, water streams, and mossy rocks, leading up to a beautiful beach with panoramic views of the vast Ocean. This walk is often done over two days, but some people manage to complete it a single day. There's a hikers campground near the beach, where hikers may choose to spend the night. Enjoy a rewarding swim in the ocean before taking the hike back. The walk is long, but isn’t particularly difficult. Towards the end, there is a long boardwalk which is comfortable to walk on. Reaching the campground requires a creek crossing - so if you're staying overnight, it's best to plan your arrival with the low tide. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
