Mallee Drive. Big deserts & open skies.
Experience the timeless outback landscapes of Victoria’s Mallee, from sand dunes and pink lakes to woodlands and rolling plains, with abundant native wildlife and fascinating remains of the pastoral era. The tour features many scenic highlights of the Wyperfeld and Murray-Sunset national parks.
It may be Victoria’s driest region, but the Mallee is far from lifeless. Emus, kangaroos, birdlife, attractive woodlands and wildflowers make this a nature lover’s delight. Starting at the Wyperfeld National Park entrance, this drive allows for lots of daytime exploration and night-time star-gazing.
See vast open spaces and endless views at O’Sullivan’s and Mt Crozier Lookouts. The 15km circuit Eastern Lookout Nature Drive passes through dry lakebeds, flood plains, and sand dunes, while the famous Pink Lakes offer fantastic photo opportunities.
Pitch a tent by dry creek beds, enjoy native woodland walks and stunning Mallee sunsets, before stepping into the area’s pastoral past at the Shearers Quarters Campground in the remote northwest.
