Wilsons Promontory Dives

Wilsons Promontory Dives

Wilsons Promontory, Victoria is a peninsula that forms the southernmost part of the Australian mainland.

Wilsons Promontory National Park, also known locally as 'The Prom', contains the largest coastal wilderness area in Victoria. The only settlement within Wilsons Promontory is Tidal River which lies 30 km south of the park boundary and is the focus for tourism and recreation. This park is managed by Parks Victoria.

There are three marine protection areas for the waters at Wilsons Promontoty:

  1. Wilsons Promontory Marine National Park
  2. Wilsons Promontory Marine Park
  3. Wilsons Promontory Marine Reserve

A scuba diving trip to Wilsons Promontory needs to be carefully planned. You need to bring plenty of extra cylinders, or a compressor, because the nearest air filling station is about 100 kilometres from Tidal River.

For snorkellers and apnea divers there are plenty of shore sites, however for many a very long walk or hike in is required. Scuba divers are unlikely to carry their heavy gear to those remote dive sites, so they only become accessible by boat for scuba diving.


Diving Wilson's Promontory from Allie Beckhurst.

Boats can be launched from the western end of Norman Bay beach at Tidal River Ramp. However, beach launching requires plenty of people to help, plus a lot of care and skill. The weather conditions need to be carefully considered, because while you may be able to launch okay, if the weather turns nasty and the surf gets up when the conditions change rapidly, retrieving the boat at Norman Beach can become impossible.

It's important to remember that when scuba diving, freediving, spearfishing or snorkelling at Wilsons Promontory, especially from a boat, that you are in an isolated area with areas of deep water and strong currents.

A very well presented book covering sites as well as marine animals off Wilsons Promontory. Commences with a description of the unique features of 'The Prom', the diving opportunities, and use of underwater photography. This is followed by an extensive section on the marine life — why the Prom is so interesting: its seaweeds and grasses, the sponges, cnidarians, worms, mosses, crustacea, sea-spiders, echinoderms, molluscs, sea-squirts, fish, mammals and seabirds. A thirty page section covers the better dive sites in some detail. Definitely recommended reading. Covers the major locations, and strong on marine life to be expected.
