Big Desert National Park

The Big Desert is home to a wide variety of birds, reptiles and mammals. It provides a challenge for the experienced hiker, offering a rare opportunity to experience a landscape largely unaffected by human activity.

Murray Sunset National Park

Murray-Sunset National Park, in Victoria’s far north-west corner, is in one of the few remaining semi-arid regions in the world where the environment is relatively untouched. With its wide open landscapes, breathtaking sunsets and starry nights, its vastness and isolation will take more than a day to explore.

This is a great park for four wheel drive touring, bushwalking and camping.

The Pink Lakes are picturesque at most times of year, changing in colour from a deep pink to a glistening white. There are excellent walking tracks in the Pink Lakes area, along with a campground.
