Starting from Telegraph Saddle car park in Wilsons Promontory this walk heads south and gradually uphill along the paved Mount Oberon Summit Track. Climb the stairs to the top and you'll be rewarded with superb views over the Promontory. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
