Photographer's Note

Squeaky beach is a bay with rocky outcrops at either end. They seem to have the effect of concentrating the waves in the bay and creating great conditions for surfing.

It is one of the beaches close to Tidal River, the main tourism centre in Wilsons Promontory. When you walk on the white, clean sand the round grains rub together making a squeaking sound. Why is the sand so white and spherical? Because it's being reworked from the aeolian dunes at the back of the beach, unlike the sand on most of the other beaches on the west coast of The Prom. Great fun for kids (and some adults too).

The southernmost point of the Australian mainland, Wilsons Promontory (affectionately known to Victorians as 'the Prom') is arguably the most loved national park in Victoria. Its 130 km coastline is framed by granite headlands, mountains, forests and fern gullies. The park contains the largest coastal wilderness area in Victoria.
