Squeaky Beach, Tidal River, Mount Oberon and the Lighthouse - the peninsula southeast of Melbourne is a coastal refuge of rugged bushland trails, pristine beaches and native wildlife.
Drive listeners tell stories of camping misadventure, helicopter escapes and big cats in this crowd-sourced history:. Perfectly positioned with no spillage over the sides. Moral is to keep items of clothing inside the tent. We spent the next 4 hours drifting around with the whale and at one stage it got so close I could have stepped out of the boat and onto it's back.
It was amazing and I have some great photos to remember it by. Four generations of Prom campers in our family. My mum was one of 10, so a big gaggle of aunts, uncles, and cousins, often taking over a whole section of the Tidal River camp if the ballot went our way. Lots of BBQ's swims, walks, card games, and fires in the shelter sheds.
As a treat we would get an ice cream or milkshake from the shop. A couple of years we bought our own washing machine, hooked it up in the communal amenities block cause there were so many nappies to be washed due to an influx the new born cousins! The next generation and the generation after that too, are also part of this beautiful place.
My parents met there as teenagers and it was also their honeymoon destination. We went on holiday there every year for the first 20 years of my life and as often as I could after that. This year has brought the death of both my dad and grandmother and covid prevented our family reunion but we are all looking forward to returning again sometime soon to reconnect and remember. On the 18th may I day hiked to Sealers Cove and back. The park had only reopened a few of days before and based on the other footprints on the trail only 2 other people had been to Sealers post lockdown and I was other only person on the east side of the prom that day and the solitude was absolutely amazing.
I enlisted two mates to drive down the night before and write the proposal in the sand, so my girlfriend and I would stumble upon it.
We arrived in the morning only for me to find said friends drunk in a tent from night before. No message in sand. All went well in the end, still married, 2 kids, both who love the prom too but hate this story. Carried a pack, camped out two nights along the way.
Drove 5 hours home and spent the next week walking backwards up steps and stairs. Found muscles I didn't know I had.WILSONS PROM - AUSTRALIAS STUNNING HIDDEN GEM - YOU NEED TO WATCH THIS!
Only for flat ground. The wombats are cheekier than ever. My partner runs ultra marathons there each year with the old commandos out at a check point to encourage them.
Drive with Raf Epstein wants to uncover in to the 'real' history of iconic Melbourne spots by hearing your stories. If you have a great suggestion of a location for us to delve in to, us. David from Jan Juc told Raf his father trained in the armed forces at Wilsons Prom, went on to be a 'sig' with the 8th Division in Singapore, and ended up on the Burma railway. He wrote this poem about the Prom:. For I have seen the sun slip down behind the glennies, And the darkness flow upstream from Norman Bay, I have seen the tea tree shiver, On the banks of tidal river, When the wind comes whistling down from Oberon way.
I have seen the green and gold and grey of Squeaky.
And watched the dunes of Darby pale. I have seen the parrots glitter, In the crimson blue and gitter, And I've wandered down the sands of Biddys Trail. When we caught the Hurly Burley, Of the sarcastic and the surly, And clawed our way the Foster in the sun. And when they locked us up in Burma, And on the railway line they gave us hell.
Though my body was in capture, my mind was free to rapture, And fled to that dear land I love so well, I sometimes think that when my life is over. And my body is back in the earth from where it came from, My spirit will be free to mingle, With the surf and sand and shingle. And find eternal peace on Wilson's Prom. Check out all the places we have looked into so far.
