The Wilsons Promontory Marine National Park is a protected marine national park located in the South Gippsland region of Victoria, Australia.[1][2] The 15,500-hectare (38,000-acre) marine park is situated off the southern tip of Wilsons Promontory and extends along the coastline from Norman Bay, near Tidal River, in the west around the southern tip of the promontory to Cape Wellington in the east. It extends offshore to the Glennie and Anser groups of offshore islands.
