Eastern Lookout Nature Tour

1 hour

The Eastern Lookout Nature Tour begins at the eastern side of the Wonga Campground. Look for the signposts.

This is an easy loop drive, suitable for 2WD vehicles and travel along 15km of gravel road.

Pass through usually dry lakebeds, flood plains, sand dunes and peaceful Mallee country. Morning and evening are best times for wildlife viewing.

Please travel slowly, look out for wildlife and ensure you don’t drive off the formed road - it’s very easy to get bogged off-road in the sandy soil. Roadside numbers refer to the notes provided in the park note.


Eastern Lookout via Lignum Track

4 hours (return), 10km

Start at the Information Centre. 200 metres along the James Barrett Nature Drive Track, turn left along Lignum Track.

Travel about 2km to a track junction, then turn left.

When you reach James Barrett Nature Drive Track again, turn right to Eastern Lookout. Return via Lignum Track, opposite the carpark.

The track crosses or passes close to several dry lake beds that can become muddy after rain. Keep an eye out for kangaroos and emus among the red gums and dry lake beds.
