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.

How to get there

There are no tracks into the park. Some old fire trails are being revegetated and are not suitable for vehicles. The best approach is by walking from the Nhill-Murrayville Road, which is separated from the park by a 5km strip of public land. The Nhill-Murrayville Road is a dry weather road only and may be rough in places.
