About Wilsons Promontory

Wilsons Promontory

 

 is a peninsula that forms the southernmost part of the Australian mainland and is located at 39°02′S 146°23′E in the state of VictoriaSouth Point at 39°08′06″S 146°22′32″E is the southernmost tip of Wilsons Promontory and hence of mainland Australia. Located at nearby South East Point, (39°07′S 146°25′E) is the Wilsons Promontory Lighthouse.

Human history

 

Evidence of Aboriginal occupation at Wilsons Promontory dates back at least 6,500 years and the park is highly significant to the Gunai Kurnai and the Boonerwrung Clans who call it Yiruk and Warnoon respectively. The first European to see the promontory was George Bass in January 1798. He initially referred to it as "Furneaux's Land" in his diary, believing it to be what Captain Furneaux had previously seen. But on returning to Port Jackson and consulting Matthew Flinders he was convinced that the location was so different it could not be that land. Bass and Flinders recommended the name Wilsons Promontory to Governor Hunter, honouring Flinders's friend from London Thomas Wilson. Little is known of Wilson except that he was a merchant engaged in trade with Australia.

The promontory has been a National Park, to one degree or another, since 1898.  Wilsons Promontory National Park, also known locally as "the Prom", contains the largest coastal wilderness area in Victoria. The site was closed to the public during World War II, as it was used as a commando training ground. 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 .In 2005 a burn started by staff got out of control and burnt 13% of the park, causing the evacuation of campers. In 2009, a lightning strike near Sealer's Cove started a fire that burned over 25,000 hectares. Much of the area had not been burned since 1951. The fire began on February 8 during "Black Saturday" where an intense heat wave, combined with arson, faulty electrical infrastructure and natural causes, led to hundreds of bush fires burning throughout the state of Victoria. Although the fire burned to within one kilometer, the Tidal River camping area and park headquarters were unaffected. The park reopened to the public one month after the incident and the burned areas have quickly regrown. Despite the damage, the natural beauty of the area remains largely intact.

Coastal features include expansive intertidal mudflats, sandy beaches and sheltered coves interrupted by prominent headlands and plunging granite cliffs in the south, backed by coastal dunes and swamps. The promontory is surrounded by a scatter of small granite islands which, collectively, form the Wilsons Promontory Islands Important Bird Area, identified as such by BirdLife International because of its importance for breeding seabirds.

 

 

Wildlife

Wilsons Promontory is home to many marsupials, native birds and other creatures. One of the most common marsupials found on the promontory is the Common Wombat, which can be found in much of the park (especially around campsites where it has been known to invade tents searching for food). The peninsula is also home to kangaroos,snakeswallabieskoalaslong-nosed potorooswhite-footed dunnartsbroad-toothed ratsfeather-tailed gliders andemus. Some of the most common birds found on the promontory include crimson rosellasyellow-tailed black cockatoos and superb fairywrens. There are also many pests hog deerfoxesferal catsrabbitscommon starlings, and common blackbirds.

As the Wilsons Promontory Marine National Park and Corner Inlet Marine National Park have been established, the area holds variety of marine life and coral reefs. In recent years, after long disappearance due to illegal hunts by Soviet Union with helps by Japan, Southern right whales finally started coming back to the area to rest and calve in the sheltered bays along with Humpback whalesKiller whales are also known to pass the area, and dolphinssealssea lions, and penguins still occur today.
