Arrive at Wilsons Promontory and embark on your first hike, a 6.8 kilometer return journey to Mt Oberon. From the summit, you will experience arguably the best coastal views in Victoria. After you return, you will head into Tidal River for lunch and some down time before tackling your second hike to Squeaky Beach via Pillar Point. At every turn expect beautiful turquoise waters and breathtaking mountain views. At Squeaky beach wander on the rounded grains of quartz which make a squeaking sound, giving this popular local beach its name.

Our guide Suki was very knowledgeable & friendly. The street art was AMAZING!! So great to wander laneways that I have never been up & feel the vibe of each one. Thoroughly recommend this. Wear comfy shoes for lots of walking. The studio tour & refreshments at the end adds to the experience of a small tour group & meeting the artists is very interesting.
