Starting at Telegraph Saddle Carpark, the hike to Mt Oberon makes a steady incline as it weaves up the mountain. As you near the peak, a steep climb up steps will lead you to the rocky summit.
Standing 558m high, Mt Oberon offers incredible 360-degree views over Wilsons Prom. See sparkling turquoise water and picturesque islands scattered off the coast. Along the shore, spot the beautiful bays on Wilsons Prom’s western coast; Little Oberon Bay, Norman Bay, Leonard Bay, Picnic Bay and Whisky Bay.
Enjoy scenic views over Tidal River Campground and trace the river as it weaves through coastal heath to the sandy shores of Norman Beach. Further inland, admire the rolling peaks of forested mountains.
Look south towards the southern-most tip of Australia's mainland, which is home to an abundance of native wildlife including wombats, emus, kangaroos and echidnas. Explore the southern section of Wilsons Prom on longer hikes if you get the chance.
Hike to Mt Oberon later in the day for one of the best best spots to watch the sunset at Wilsons Prom, but don't forget to bring a torch.
