Squeaky Beach, so named because of the sounds you'll hear while walking along the sand.

The Parks Victoria's expert explains that 'the rounded grains of quartz make a squeaking sound when you walk, giving this popular local beach its name'.

The famous white sand leads to turquoise waters at one of Wilsons Promontory's most iconic beaches.

 

If you like adventure, you will love the northern end of the beach, with its large granite boulders creating a maze of passages to explore. Marvel at the brilliant orange rocks that contrast perfectly with the clear blue ocean and visit at dusk to watch the changing hues at sunset.

Squeaky Beach can be reached from a range of short walks including the Lilly Pilly Gully car park, Picnic Bay or Tidal River, which offers spectacular coastal views.

How to get here:

By Bus, Taxi -  Bus and Taxi service will take approx 3hours from Melbourne.  You can take Southern Cross Coach to Roo Fuel/Meeniyan - Promontory service.

By Drive - It takes approx 3 hours drive from St. Kidla to Norman Beach-Whisky Beach Walk, Wilsons Promontory.
