Little Desert National Park
One of Victoria’s more unique national parks is this vast, sandy expanse of low-lying scrub that spans the width of West Wimmera’s upper boundaries.
Famous for its spring wildflowers and Mallee Fowl, it’s also known for its magical sunsets and stunning star-lit night skies.
Divided into three sections, the West Wimmera’s central and western blocks beckon for the more adventurous, off-road traveller.
Its deep sandy tracks are suitable for 4WDs only, and hikers will need to be self-sufficient. The West Wimmera’s access points are off the Kaniva–Edenhope Rd and along the Nhil–Harrow Rd near Goroke.
The lesser-visited western block of the park is even more fitting for intrepid folk and is also entered via the Kaniva–Edenhope Rd.
Otherwise take the Serviceton South Rd from the north or the Minimay–Frances Rd from the south.
