The Big Drift
Escape the crowds who flock to the southern Prom with a walk out to the Big Drift, a series of ever-changing inland sand dunes. This other-worldly landscape reveals a very different side to Wilsons Prom and is a short walk from Stockyards Camp, just by the park entrance.
Agnes River rises below Beech Hill in state forestry area within the Strzelecki Ranges, and flows generally south in a highly meandering course, before reaching its mouth in Corner Inlet of Bass Strait, southeast of the town of Toora in the South Gippsland Shire. The river descends 570 metres (1,870 ft) over its course. The Agnes River sub-catchment area is managed by the West Gippsland Catchment Management Authority. The river is traversed by the South Gippsland Highway between Toora and Welshpool.
Waratah Bay The Waratah Bay is located in south Gippsland, Victoria. The bay is an arc of almost 20 kilometres of flat sandy beach framed by Cape Liptrap to the west and Wilsons Promontory in the east.
