There are more than 70 significant plant species including Victoria's largest flower, the Murray Lily, the restricted Silvery Emu-bush and the Blue-leafed Mallee. Grasslands, saltbush, buloke, porcupine grass and mallee eucalypts dominate the flat, expansive landscape with pockets of native cypress-pine and Belah woodlands scattered throughout.

On Lindsay Island, River Red Gums line the creeks, and Black Box woodlands surround the floodplain. Salt tolerant plants favour the low lying dry lake bed areas.


Murray-Sunset National Park is one of the few regions in Victoria where the red kangaroos can be seen in their numbers. The park is home to a threatened species such as the Paucident Planigale - a small carnivorous marsupial, the slender yellow and green Regent Parrot and the Millewa Skink. Birdlife includes Mallee Fowl, Pink Cockatoos and White-browed Tree creepers. On a warm afternoon Bearded and Mallee Dragons may be seen.
