Five Mile Beach camping area (walk-in camping)
Five Mile Beach arrows along the eastern coast of Wilsons Promontory between Monkey Point and the headland that hides gorgeous Sealers Cove. This generous sweep of sand is a great place to go beachcombing, swimming or just nap while the ocean laps the shore. The camping area is a 16.7 km hike from the Five Mile Rd carpark, accessed off Wilsons Promontory Rd.

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.
