The Promontory National Park, jutting out of the Australian mainland towards Tasmania, is one of Australia’s most popular national parks and, with a myriad of bushwalking trails, a stunning coastline and fantastic beaches, it’s not hard to see why. A short (by Australian standards) 2.5 hour drive from Melbourne, the camp itself sits in its own private grounds and is within easy walking distance of the beach. The park’s heathlands are, in particular, home to an abundance of wildlife from long-nosed Potoroo and feather-tailed gliders to the more familiar kangaroos, koalas and wombats.
Boutique tents are designed to offer an authentic bush experience combined with luxury comforts. Look out over the bush from your private timber deck complete with table and chairs before retiring to the queen size bed, en suite shower and futon chair. An innovative modular steel frame lessens your retreat’s impact on the environment.
Guests have full use of the communal kitchen, complemented by a full range of cooking utensils, cutlery and crockery. For a more back-to-nature experience, take to the covered barbecue with provisions sold from the local general store. There’s also a nearby café, which serves all day breakfast; it’s an ideal place to stop for a latte on your way out into the park. In the peak season it serves bistro meals for lunch and dinner.
The best that the camp has to offer can be found outside its borders. Affectionately known as the Prom, the national park is framed by granite headlands, mountains and forests which make for a fitting backdrop for bush walks that range from short strolls to overnight hikes. Nearby Norman Bay is safe for swimming and multiple guided activities can be booked out of the camp, from abseiling to yoga.
