My last road trip to Wilsons Prom National Park surprised me in a few different ways. I was amazed at the variety of activities people were engaging in, more than ever before. I saw several people flying kites on the sandy flats of Tidal River as well as kayaking, kite surfing and bike riding on the beach.
The biggest changes though, were from the after effects of the floods just 2 years ago, with the altered river bed, mountains and hillside land slides being still noticeably present. But the entire coastline here has been profoundly shaped by the winds, the fires and the floods, so we expect to see changes from year to year, but with the bush fires in 2009 and the massive flood waters in 2011, these changes were even more profound.
