Oberon Bay camping area (walk-in camping)
Oberon Bay is just around Norman Point from Tidal River, and makes a wonderful introduction to camping on the promontory. You can reach Oberon by walking south from Telegraph Saddle down Telegraph Track and then taking another track west to the bay – a distance of around 17 km. You can also walk here directly from Tidal River, which involves a mixture of walking trails and plodding along pristine beaches.
The coastal route from Tidal River makes a good day walk, even if you are not camping overnight. The views from Norman Point are striking, and the huge granite boulders covered in bright orange lichen at Little Oberon Bay are fantastic photographic subjects, as are the white sand and clear turquoise waters.

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.
