melbourne to Wilsons promontory shuttle
wilsons promontory daily shuttle service with lunch included
Our daily shuttle service to Wilsons Promontory National Park is designed for those who want to get out of town early and maximise the time on the ground exploring the beauty of The Prom. We get you there by mid morning giving you almost six hours of free time to hike to the summit of Mt Oberon, swim or seek out wildlife encounters.
7 great reasons to choose the melbourne to Prom shuttle
We are the locally based Wilsons Promontory specialists with reliable 7 days per week service
Fully supported with drop offs and pick ups at key locations inside the park and emergency contact support
With just four key pick up locations in the Melbourne CBD and one pick up location in St Kilda we are out of town and on our way promptly giving you more time on the ground when you arrive.
We take the most direct route and we do not divert to collect passengers from Phillip Island. Other tour companies will do this and it robs you of 45 minutes of your life that is better spent exploring nature.

You are free to explore the Prom your way and not bound to a tour itinerary
Hop on / hop off available giving you the option of staying inside the park overnight or tackling a multi day walk.
