Glamping Wilsons Prom:

You can spend a lovely two days walking from Mt Oberon Car park to Wilsons Prom Lighthouse and back staying in pretty plush accommodation at the lighthouse. The distances are considerable, but this way you only need to carry a daypack with emergency supplies, a bottle of wine to drink on the verandah at night etc, so the 19.1 km there via Telegraph Saddle and the slightly longer journey back via Little Waterloo Bay is quite ‘doable’. If two retirees can do it, so can you! You can also (instead) take the slightly longer route from Tidal River via Oberon Bay (23.8 km). For details, bookings and pictures about the accommodation, see here: Of course, if you can’t quite make those distances or if you want to camp out, there are campsites with water, etc at the Half Way Hut, Roaring Meg (about an hour from the lighthouse) and at Little Waterloo Bay (about half way back). You may notice an absence of Jack Russels in this post – too public a (banned) spot for them I’m afraid. The pictures lack something from their absence…

You could not wish for whiter sand or bluer water anywhere.
