We want to become permanent residents of the Wilson’s Promontory National Park. There, we said it. Any Victorian could tell you why – it’s a place of soulful beauty, yes, but also a spot where you can be a kid again. (Who wouldn’t love a place with a Squeaky Beach and long-nosed potoroos?) Switch off your phone, shed your shoes and hide out in one of the many cosy cabins of Tidal River. A weekend here will make you feel human again. More info: Visit Melbourne
