Wildlife Coast Nature Trail
The coastal route between Sale and Phillip Island is truly a unique part of our land. Located at the most southerly point on the Australian mainland, its combination of wild oceans, dunes, inter-tidal mudflats, mangroves, rainforest and coastal lake systems provides the visitor with possibly the most diverse nature-based touring experience in the country.
It includes five national and coastal parks of major significance, including Wilsons Promontory and the Lakes National Park. In between there are numerous other reserves to provide a constant source of fascination and pleasure for the visitor, especially those interested in wildlife.
Almost the entire route is on well maintained, sealed roads, although there are many opportunities to safely venture off the beaten track on a discovery all of your own. For most of the journey you will feel that its just you and the elements, yet the comfort of a good bed and a hearty country meal is never too far away.
If possible, take your time to wander this route, or promise yourself to return soon to discover all that it has to offer.
