Lilly Pilly Gully Circuit is a 5.6km, grade 2 circuit hike, located in Wilsons Promontory National Park, Victoria. The hike should take approximately 2hrs to complete.

Hike Summary

A popular day visitor destination the Lilly Pilly Gully Track offers visitors a chance to experience one of Australia's southern-most patches of warm temperate rainforest.

Starting at the Lilly Pilly Gully car park the hike follows the Lilly Pilly Gully Track as it meanders through the lush rainforest of Lilly Pilly Gully before ascending to climb across the southern face of Mount Bishop through stringy-bark forest. The final stage continues through the rainforest again as part of the return Lilly Pilly Gully Nature Walk.

The Lilly Pilly Gully Circuit provides a glimpse into the Prom's forested interior, traversing heathland, eucalypt forest and a boardwalk through stands of warm temperate rainforest.

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.
