Big Drift is an ever-changing inland sand dune; the dune creates a good view in Wilson's Promontory National Park if you climb up. The round trip is around 3 km (1 1/2 miles. The climb usually takes a couple of hours. You often get a good view of Wilson's Promontory and the ocean. Getting up the sand drift can be demanding, as is the golden sand.

The car park is well signed and is located just inside the main gate, but has a small number of spaces allocated for day visitors. The toilets are currently out of order. While the walk to the base of the dune isn't too taxing and takes about 25-30 minutes at a steady pace, it's the short climb to the top of the dune that is quite difficult and requires some level of fitness. It is definitely not for the elderly or those with balance or knee issues; I found it difficult as I kept stumbling in the sand and fell over a few times. If you can find a large enough stick, I recommend using it to assist with climbing the dune. Also ensure to pick a day that isn't windy, otherwise all you'll see is sand in your eyes. Definitely worth the view though!

Park at the Stockmans Campground right near the the Wilson’s Prom a park entrance. The walk says it is 2.1kms and takes 45 mins however we took only 25 mins and did it quite easily. The trail is on fairly wide grass tracks with a very sandy last stretch for the last 300 metres. The final 20-30 metres is straight up a sandy slope which is very doable but not for the unfit or elderly. Once at the top of the track you get massive vistas of wide expanse of sand dunes stretching for a couple kilometres. It’s like a mini Sahara Desert and most impressive. Word of note: there are no marking to indicate the track to get back to the car park so make note of where you came off the track. Kids would have fun if they brought a bogey board as there a few great slopes to slide down. Final note: wear appropriate clothing and don’t bring strollers. We saw one family that brought a stroller and they would’ve had no chance of getting the stroller up to the dunes. One of the women also wore leather pants and quite dressy clothing. Honestly this is not an easy stroll and on a hot day this would’ve been ridiculously unbearable wearing leather pants. Crazy!!

Despite having been to Wilson's prom several times, I have just discovered "the big drift". , a 63 meters sand dune from where you get a fantastic view. You start from the stockyard campsite, an easy walk to the start of the climb up the dune. Also it is easily to get lost after wandering around the top admiring the view as the wind covers your steps and it is hard to get back to the part where you came up without any indications.

I’m writing this not because the experience and view was great. This is a needed PSA. Please don’t think this is something to take your nana or mum with bad knees. It’s not 2.8km and the walk to the steep dune climb is NOT for elderly. I’m 33 and was surprised by the lack of honest reviews about the level of difficulty. Don’t take your grandma or parents if they can’t go on all fours and climb a steep sand dune. Can you imagine walking 30 mins and leaving poor mum and dad at the bottom because the can’t climb the final steep incline of soft sand? That would be heartbreaking. Just sayin’. Otherwise it’s a nice view at sunset.

Incredible!! We arrived an hour after sunrise and did the easy walk in from the carpark and then the short steep (30 metre) scramble to the top. Once we were there, stunning white rolling sand dunes as far as the eye could see. Wow! It felt like being on another planet and we were the only ones there even though it was a long weekend in summer!!I’ve been to the Prom ten times and can’t believe it took until today to experience the Big Drift. We were so glad we came so early because it’s so exposed (hot!) and after taking 100 photos, playing with shadows, sitting in the awesome peace, trekking across untouched fresh dunes (without footprints) and laughing at my partner rolling down the dunes like he was 40 years younger, we were ready to leave all the families arriving with their boogie boards to their fun. Take your sunglasses and water! Don’t go after 10am or you will be fried. I hear it’s great just after rain too. Highly recommend!

The Big Drift is a large expanse of inland sand dunes. The entrance to the Big Drift is on Wilsons Prom road, Stockyards Camp, near the entrance to the Park. For anyone who hasn't seen real sand dunes before, it's a marvellous sight. Navigation can be tricky, make sure you know how to get out again once you enter the Big Drift.

The Big Drift is one of the highlights of the national park. It's not a demanding walk from the carpark. The climb onto the sand dunes was steep. Once on top, there was a lot to see and explore.

The big drift in my opinion was a highlight of visiting the prom. The first part of the walk was very easy-walking through paddocks but the second half was up and down hills. The very last part of the walk includes you having to climb a very steep sand dune. I could imagine many people without a great fitness level may not be able to do this. My partner and I are in our early 30’s and probably have a medium fitness level and found the last part exhausting. The four men behind us also found it exhausting with the 6 of us sitting on the top of the dune trying to get our breath back once at the top. Personally I don’t believe you would be able to take young children on the walk.

Definitely worth an hours detour. You walk 20 mins from Stockyards car park just inside nat park (turn immediately right as you pass ranger station). Like something from a movie once you get up there. Lots of opportunities to recreate Star Wars Tattoine or Lawrence of Arabia. Strong legs needed for last scramble but it is a safe climb.
