Location and Tips
Squeaky Beach is one of the many magical places in the often called "The Prom". The park was established in 1898. The name of the beach comes from the grains of quartz. It makes a squeaking sound while walking on the sand. The beach is well known for the huge granite boulders with algae on it which causes this fiery red colour.
If you stay outside of the park, it's an hour drive or even more. The park offers only a few cabins, often fully booked. The campground is huge, and the sanitation is fine. The camping fee is high, but cabins outside the park are quite expensive. The big advantage of camping inside the park is that you are able to enjoy the morning and evening moods. In the morning it is silent on hiking trails, and in the evening you might spot wombats at the campground. Many birds are used to people, and you may spot them close or they even fly to your head.
