Description of hike

Mount Bishop Lilly Pilly Gully is a 9.6km, grade 3 Circuit hike located in Wilsons Promontory National Park Victoria. The hike should take approximately 3hrs to complete.


The Mount Bishop Lilly Pilly Gully  explores the rocky summit of Mount Bishop and offers magnificent views of the Prom’s west coast and offshore islands. It is well worth the rock scramble to the summit. This hike is a combination of the Mount Bishop hike and the Lilly Pilly Gully Track. From the carpark Follow the Lilly Pilly Gully Circuit Track east. About three quarters of the way (approx 4.1km) around the circuit track turn right at the side track that leads to the rocky summit of Mount Bishop. After taking some time to appreciate the breathtaking views retrace your steps to the Lilly Pilly Gully Track then turn right to return to the car park.

Getting there

From Melbourne follow M1 (Monash Freeway) to Pakenham. Take the exit for C422 from M1. Follow Koo Wee Rup Rd/C422 and Koo-Wee-Rup Bypass Rd to S Gippsland Hwy/M420 in Koo Wee Rup. Then follow the South Gippsland Hwy/M420 and A440 to Meeniyan-Promontory Rd/C444 in Meeniyan. Drive to C444 in Wilsons Promontory. The Lilly Pilly Gully Carpark is approximately 2.6km on the Melbourne side of Tidal River (just after the Squeeky Beach Carpark Road.


Steep, narrow path. Early sections are relatively easy-going, but track becomes narrower and more difficult as you climb. May be some branches on track to be stepped over. There is a self composting toilet, conveniently located right near the entrance of the car park.

Accommodation in Yanakie which is just outside the gates of the Prom, can be organised via the hike hosts. For more information, please contact Tom & Tara.

Risk and Waiver of liability Conditions of hike attendance

Trail Hiking Australia provides a ‘hike at your own risk’ platform. My website is simply a platform to gather outdoor enthusiasts together. I do not provide a professional guide service (Yet). The hosts who are hiking with you may or may not have CPR or first aid abilities. They are not required to have a first aid kit on them. They are not actual ‘guides’ but are simply creating a meeting point for all attendees to gather. All a host is promising by posting a hike in the Trail Hiking Australia calendar is that they will be at the meeting point to help everyone gather. They will also make every effort to lead and will keep the group hiking together. By joining a hike you automatically accept that you have read and agree to the waiver. Not reading this document does not excuse you from agreeing to the personal liability terms of this waiver.
