Squeaky Beach (Wilsons Promontory National Park)


Squeaky Beach (Wilsons Promontory National Park)

One of the Prom's iconic locations, Squeaky Beach has rounded quartz sand that 'squeaks' when you walk on it. Enclosed by impressive granite boulders at either end of the beach, this is a great location for a picnic.

Visitor Tips: Parking and toilets are available at the Sqeaky Beach Carpark or walk from neighbouring Picnic Bay or Tidal River. Beware of wave surges and strong currents. This beach is not patrolled.
