- A blue-green algae bloom (meeting the recreational water triggers) is currently affecting Lake Hattah and Lake Mournpall. Warning signage is on site. Visitors are warned not to swim in or have any direct contact with the water. Any fish harvested from affected water should have gills and guts removed prior to cooking. Avoid eating whole fish, shellfish or crustaceans collected from Lake Hattah or Lake Mournpall. More information about blue-green algae is available from Department of Health and Human Services. at Hattah - Kulkyne National Park, Friday 17 May, 2019
Hattah-Kulkyne National Park lies in typical mallee country with extensive low scrub and open native pine woodland. Superbly adapted birds, animals and vegetation thrive in the poor, sandy soils and searing summers.
The freshwater Hattah Lakes is seasonally filled by creeks connected to the Murray, providing food and shelter for waterbirds and fish. These lakes can remain full for up to ten years without flooding, but flooding generally occurs once every two years.
Camping, walking, bike riding and canoeing are popular here and in the adjoining Murray-Kulkyne Park.
How to get there
The Hattah-Kulkyne National Park is about 450km from Melbourne off the Calder Highway, between Ouyen and Mildura. The Park is 35km north of Ouyen and 74km south of Mildura.
