A nice alternative to the often-busy Tidal River, Stockyard Campground hides away among eucalypts and banksias near the Wilsons Promontory National Park entrance. Pitch a tent and discover all Wilsons Prom has to offer.
The grassy surrounds are a favourite of native wildlife, while the in-flower banksias attract colourful native birds. Spot kangaroos, wallabies and wombats as they visit the campground and Crimson Rosellas, New-holland Honeyeaters darting between nectar-rich foliage.
