One weekend, we decided to head to Wilson's Prom for some impromptu camping with some travelling friends. We drove down one Saturday and found our campsite at Tidal River - the main campsite at the prom. Soon after a car load of others arrived and quickly set up camp.
We decided to walk along Squeaky Beach (where your feet squeak as you walk) and laid in the sun for a while before heading to Whiskey Bay to watch the sunset and have a few drinkies with all our new acquaintances. The beaches on the west side of the prom are beautiful and accessible by car (as opposed to the east side beaches where you can only get there by hiking). Whiskey Bay, and most of the Prom, is characterised by big boulders that are tainted red and look absolutely stunning as the sun goes down.
The next morning we all had a fry up breakfast and continued exploring the west side beaches. While most of the group went off to Squeaky Beach, Phil and I decided to hike to Tongue Point which starts at Darby River car park. It took us just under two hours to do the 4km return trip. The hike starts with a tedious uphill path, but then evens out and the rest of the way you are walking above the coastline. I ended up taking the side track to Fairy Cove beach, which was secluded and beautiful, whilst Phil continued to Tongue point.
Until next adventure,
