Wilsons Promontory


I work in the heart of the city and travel in by train or bike five days a week. I see a constant stream of plastic and waste. Sometimes I need to get away to a place with less people, more trees and no plastic. I really value going on a walk and not encountering left behind trash along the streets of my area (No matter that I pick up rubbish every time I leave the house, it never seems enough). 

With the company of my brother I took myself to Wilsons Promontory National Park, or 'the Prom' as it is know. Beaches, islands, rainforests, and mountains are protected over 50,460 hectares on the southern most tip of the Australian mainland.

Looking at the photos I am reminded why I have to say no to plastic and saying yes to a waste free life. It's so sanctuaries like this remain as they are, for future generations and not polluted with dumb plastic and waste like this...

  1. One of my favourite places to visit. Recently we had a quick 3 day break camping in a national park and took everything with us. We generated minimal waste. It felt so good so be mindful and it proved that it can be done.

    1. Mine too :) I felt so fortunate to visit. I am seeing more and more people being mindful when camping in our national parks. It's nice to leave it as we find it.
