Just Inside The Gate is a self-catering eco-lodge accommodation past Yanakie and on the border of the national park. Book just the East Wing for up to four people, or the the East and West Wings - the whole house - for up to eight people.
The two accommodation wings are separated by two independent lounges with a central entrance and purpose designed mud room, perfect for gear storage after a day trekking in the park.
The bedrooms in each wing enjoy rural, mountain and inlet views, all have luxury bathrooms with solar hot water to provide a great end to each days activities.
Two guest lounge areas offer the comfort of leather lounges with ceiling fans for summer and the warmth of environmentally friendly gas log fires in winter. Each wing contains a modern kitchen with European appliances and there is an expansive deck, with a gas barbecue, overlooking the national park and bordering farmlands.

The Wilsons Promontory Visitor Information Centre hires out an all-terrain wheelchair known as a TrailRider. The TrailRiders are free to hire, but must be booked through the information centre. Call on (03) 8427 2122 for more information.
The TrailRider is motorised and requires a minimum of two people to operate. Four operators are recommended for long trails or walks with significant gradients. The passenger of the TrailRider chair is required to wear a bike helmet when using the chair and visitors are asked to provide their own helmet.
The level of access to park trails and park beaches will largely depend on fitness of chair operators, ground surface, trail gradients and other factors. The All-terrain wheelchairs available easily disassemble and fit in the back of a station wagon.
