Well hidden by the healthy coastal flora, the Tidal River campground is at the far end of Norman Beach.
Leaving Norman Bay, the track hugs the coastline, providing views across Bass Strait to the horizon.
Around the first headland is this sparkling view of the second beach on this walk.
After leaving the beach, the walk continues along the coast on a compacted sandy track.
Around the next headland, more beauty awaits. The campground is at the far end of this beach.
Xanthoria Parietina (Common Orange Lichen) give the granite boulders their distinctive colour. There is a shallow flowing river to cross here.
The track varies with the landscape, sometimes narrow, sometimes wide, sometimes flat and sandy, sometimes steep and rocky!
A cluster of enormous boulders perched at the top of this peak. Imagine how old they are!
A breathtaking view of the East coast of the Prom.
Descending the sand dunes and over the swamps. Keep your feet dry thanks to the many boardwalk sections.
Love this part of the track, but can get a bit windy sometimes.
Yes, its a gorgeous bay!
At the southern end of the beach is this fresh water but it's not suitable for drinking.
The Prom does have a lot of snakes, and if you're lucky you might get to see one or two.
You are here!
