New Accomodation Opens At The Prom

Accommodation at Wilsons Promontory National Park has been expanded following the opening of six new units at Tidal River.

The Andrews Labor Government funded the $2 million project which provides improved access for people with a disability.

Six newly built stylish accommodation units have now replaced units that were damaged by floods in 2011.

Each unit comprises a spacious living area, fully self-contained kitchen, bathroom and sun deck, and offers sweeping views to Mount Bishop.

For more information, or to book your stay in the new Tidal River Units, call 13 19 63 or visit:www.parkstay.vic.gov.au
