Big Drift Walk (Wilsons Promontory National Park)

Just inside the entrance to Wilsons Prom, the Big Drift Walk is accessed from Stockyard Campground. Follow the management vehicle track along the park boundary to the northern flank of Big Drift. Scale the sand dune to find expansive views of the ever-changing dunes.

This short Grade 3 trail is 4km and 1.5 hours return. There is no beach access from Big Drift.

It is easy to get lost, so mark your path to return.

Carparking, toilets and untreated tank water are available at Stockyard Campground. Treat or boil water before use.
