Photos And Useful Information About Tidal Overlook Walking Track
About The Walking Tracks – Tidal Overlook is the highest point between Leonard Bay and Norman Bay in the popular Wilsons Prom National Park, and the broad grassy plains indicate the amount of wind that must gust here at times. But the low shrubbery aids the viewing pleasure of hikers and bush walkers alike.
There are a number of smaller walking tracks to the side of the main route with seating spaced at regular intervals to make the journey more comfortable and to give people time to take in the ambience of the space. The tracks are all quite well signed so you can’t get lost.
On the western side of the circuit is a side track which takes you across the main road towards one of the most appealing nature walks at Lilly Pilly Gully and the scenic Mt Bishop.
About the Pictures – The photograph above is of the stunning stainless steel railed walk bridge over Tidal River close to the main town center, car park and camping ground. The pictures on the bottom of the page shows the views of Norman Bay Beach, Norman Island, the Glennie group of Islands and Tongue Point. It is quite spectacular from here and well worth the estimated 1.5 hour moderate walk from the foot bridge at Tidal River around the entire circuit.
Many people enjoy taking photographs of Wilsons Promontory, with it’s rapidy and regularly changing terrain due to the effects of wind, rain, hail, the occasional sub zero snow storms and bush fires, there’s always a lot to see. No wonder it’s been voted Australias number one tourist destination.
