Photo story – sunrise at Refuge Cove

Wilsons Promontory National Park in Australia is one of my favourite places in the world. Affectionately known as The Prom, this park has pristine beaches with squeaky-white sand and some gorgeous coves that can be discovered by strapping on a pack and going overnight hiking.

One of my favourite hikes is the three-day loop from Mt Oberon carpark to Sealers Cove, Refuge Cove and Little Waterloo Bay. We happened to hike it in the middle of winter and on the first day there was a light mist falling while we were walking. Only after we’d reached our first camping site and pitched our tent, did the heavens open with torrential rain. From the comfort and warmth of our sturdy little tent, we could hear the chaos of other less fortunate campers. Many of them abandoned their hike the next day, as everything got wet. But for us, the weekend was perfect. The next two days were sunny and we witnessed this incredible sunrise over Refuge Cove.

Do you have a favourite place to go camping and hiking? One of the things I love the most about getting outdoors is that you do get to see beautiful sunrises and sunsets, and you are more vulnerable to the weather. Do you have any memorable experiences?

  2. We just spent the night at Pink Lakes camping, which is in the Murray Sunset National Park. It was beautiful at sunset and sunrise. Our tent was definitely a room with a view. It was like walking on ice out on the lakes.
