Event Description

Enjoy the comfort of a home stay, together with access to the world class Wilsons Promontory National Park for day walks.

GRADE | LENGTH | TYPE: Easy – day walks and beach activities.

ACTIVITY DESCRIPTION: We have a private house at Yanakie overlooking Corner Inlet just near the park entrance. You can come down for as many days as you like. It is quite flexible.

There are many nice day walks in the area. We will decide where to walk each day taking into account the condition of the weather and the participants. The base offers hot showers, comfortable accommodation and a log fire to warm up if the day is cold. There is a range of gay themed movies to watch in the evening for movie buffs.


MEETING TIME | LOCATION: You can arrive any time from Thursday as arranged with the leader. You will be given location details after registering.

DISTANCE | TIME FROM GPO: Approximately 195 km. Yanakie is 2.5 hours drive from Melbourne towards Wilsons Promontory.

TRANSPORT: Public transport not available. We will try to maximise car-pooling as parking is limited at the house.

FOOD: Bring supplies for your own breakfast and lunch. Communal night meals will be arranged once the numbers are known. There are staples at the house like sugar, tea etc.

COST: Free entry to the National Park. Donation towards any meals that are provided.

ACCOMMODATION: There are a limited number of beds for the early birds, some floor space and plenty of tent space in the garden. Bring linen and towels.

APPAREL | FOOTWEAR: Warm waterproof gear and changes of clothing. Summery attire is also likely to be needed. It might be warm enough to dive into the sea. Light comfortable walking footwear.
