Barry Creek camping area (walk-in camping)
As with the other campsites around the national park, you can’t stay at the Barry Creek camping area for more than 2 nights. From the carpark on Five Mile Rd, which leads east off Wilsons Promontory Rd, it’s a walk of 6.2 km to Barry Creek. Along the way, take the easy detour up to the Vereker Lookout for some fine views of the surrounding wilderness.

This campsite is located in Wilsons Promontory National Park
The hook of land that is mainland Australia’s most southerly point is also one of the most enchanting wilderness regions you could wish for. Half the park is still recovering from a bushfire early in 2009, but that hasn’t deterred visitors from funnelling through Tidal River to bushwalk across rainforests, heathlands and golden dunes, all the while gazing up at the park’s granite heights or towards an oceanic horizon. Potoroos, koalas, wombats and damselflies keep visitors company as they explore the area. Access is via Wilsons Promontory Rd from Fish Creek. A 2-night maximum stay applies to all walk-in campsites. There are day walks, visitor sites and overnight hikes that remain closed since flooding in early 2011 - check the current situation with Parks Victoria.
