The website explains the following: Wilsons Promontory National park is well loved by many and is on the southernmost point of Australia. It offers stunning coastal scenery and ‘pristine’ wilderness and lots of wildlife. Over summer ‘The Prom’ campsites are very popular, so there’s a Ballot system. This source is reliable for a number of reasons. A. Because it is the official tourist website for the place so therefore shouldn’t include incorrect information. B. Because it is a https website which means it’s a secure website (rather than a http website). This website is not very useful because it only talks about things directed towards tourists, such as the ‘pristine wilderness’ and how to get camping spots.

This website talks about the camping, wildlife and wildflowers, scenic trails and accessibility at the Prom’. You can stay either in tents or in ‘contemporary cabins’ surrounded by tranquil rivers, intimate coves and rock formations. There are also many scenic trails where the average tourist can spot native wildlife such as kangaroos, emus and echidnas. This website source is reliable because it is the official Visit Victoria website and also is a https site. The source is useful for understanding what a tourist can do at the National Park, but also for understanding some of the different flora and fauna. It’s useful to gain an understanding on what the tourism aspect of the park is like and/or how it’s promoted to tourists/visitors, but that’s about all.

This is a PDF that in summary is a timeline of Wilson’s Promontory’s history. It started from the 1700’s and finishes in 2002 (or near present). It talks of the sealing happening in 1798, of the waling from 1798 till 1947 and of the logging, mining and cattle grazing all of which occurred at the National Park that we now today know as a very popular tourist destination. This source is very reliable first of all because it’s got the Parks Victoria logo on it (implying that they’ve made the PDF) and also that it’s a PDF, and who would bother making a ‘dodgy’ PDF with fake information when you can just post it to Wikipedia? This source is very useful as it covers more than enough history on the park, which can help me in my further research to understanding the biome much better.
