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.
