Wilsons Promontory: Vereker Lookout and Millers Landing

On the day we left Wilson’s Prom, we took the 4km gravel road just before the park exit to the trailhead of Vereker Lookout and Millers Landing. The round-trip walk going to the lookout first and then down to the landing site is pretty short, it took about 90 minutes altogether and the only uphill section is on the first part towards the lookout. The views are nice all the way along to the lookout, especially since they alternate between the east and west coast. Verekerer Lookout eventually offers a great view of the Darby Swamp. After the lookout, the

Eventually, we stayed the first couple of days in Tidal River to relax and recover, doing some of the shorter day hikes, and spotting animals. It was a great place to hang out, especially in the hours of dusk when lots of wombats came out to eat. Several of these cute animals are used to the campground and even try to get hold of the food stored
