Located in the flat, semi-arid north-western corner of Victoria, Wyperfeld is one of Australia's most fascinating national parks.

The central feature of this huge park is a chain of lake beds connected by Outlet Creek, the northern extension of the Wimmera River. The lakes only fill when the Wimmera River over-supplies Lake Hindmarsh to the south of Lake Albacutya. When it rains the semi-arid landscape is transformed by tiny desert plants that sprout from long-dormant seeds, carpeting the ground with clusters of flowers.

How to get there

Wyperfeld National Park is 450kms north‐west of Melbourne and may be reached:

  • via the Western Highway at Dimboola through Rainbow to southern Wyperfeld
  • via the Sunraysia Highway at Speed through Patchewollock to Pine Plains
  • via Hopetoun on the Henty Highway
  • via Underbool on the Mallee Highway.

A sealed road provides access from Rainbow or Hopetoun to Wonga Camping area in the south. Casuarina and Snowdrift camping areas in the north of the park are accessible from Patchewollock by two wheel drive. If coming from Underbool along Gunners Track or Wonga, four wheel drive is required.
