East - Wilsons Promontory Marine National Park
Wilsons Promontory Marine
National Park extends along 70 kilometres of mainland coastline and covers
15,550 hectares, making it the largest of our Marine National Parks. It is
located around the southern tip of the Wilsons Promontory National Park, incorporating
the existing Wilsons Promontory Marine Reserve. Most of the terrestrial areas
of Wilsons Promontory have been reserved since 1905, and its importance for
nature conservation is widely appreciated.
Wilsons Promontory is the northernmost exposed link in a chain of granite mountains that continues across Bass Strait and onto eastern Tasmania. Due the different type of rock found here and its position at the boundary of the influence two major ocean currents, Wilsons Promontory Marine National Park provides for long term conservation of a distinct bioregion of Victoria's coastline.
TWilsons Promontory is located approximately 220 kilometres south-east of Melbourne.
