The 1.5km long Waterloo Bay beach is not as photogenic as the smaller Little Waterloo Bay to the north… but it’s still a beautiful beach in Wilsons Promontory National Park. The beach is backed by a low vegetated foredune and a swamp up to 1km wide.
Although relatively safe for swimming and traversed by some of the popular Wilsons Prom bushwalking routes, there’s not much shade along the beach. Most bushwalkers will walk along the beach, but it’s not really a popular stop.
The beach is more stunning from a distance, with a great view over both Waterloo Bay and Little Waterloo Bay from the track that leads to the Lightstation.
Getting to Waterloo Bay
The beach is reached via a 20.6km (return) bushwalk from Telegraph Saddle via the Telegraph Track, so it can be done as a day-walk – or as an overnight bushwalk staying at Little Waterloo Bay.
The beach is also part of the 2-4 day Wilsons Prom Southern Circuit, which follows the full length of the beach.
