Overall rating
  • Sealers Cove Walking Track closed until further notice
    Wilsons Promontory National Park experienced widespread damage due to several flood and storm events in 2021. This significantly damaged many tracks including the Sealers Cove Boardwalk. A detailed engineering assessment found that the entire two kilometres of the Sealers Cove Boardwalk will need to be replaced. Planning is underway for this work, including costing the work to secure funding. Due to the extent of the damage, and complexity of the work required, Sealers Cove Walking Track will be closed until at least Spring 2023. Access to Sealers Cove is still achievable via Refuge Cove, which is a 25km hike from Telegraph Saddle.

    We love this hike. Such a beautiful and secluded destination.

  • Looks beautiful. Can we light a fire in winter??

  • Have walked this track on a number of occasions – once in summer when the bus from Tidal River was running up to the Telegraph Saddle car park and numerous times in winter. Much prefer walking this track in the winter months when there are less people around as it can get busy in the warmer months.

    Last walked the track in 2015 in what started out as persistent showers and ended up as constant heavy rain. Fortunately the prevailing weather comes from the south east and much of the track was sheltered from the blustery conditions.

    A great setting for an excellent not day walk.

  • Really good walk, we have done it in less than 3h
