This is truly a beautiful place and worth a visit. I would you suggest you either take a tour as we did (Murray Off Road Adventures) or use a 4 x 4 if it has rained recently as the tracks can be difficult in parts. Make sure you have plenty of water and a full tank of petrol as our guides actually found someone who had run out of petrol and had been stranded for 3 days without water or a phone signal.
The pink salt lakes are amazing and we were lucky to see both Eastern Greys and Red Kangaroos and well as Lizards and birds. When you arrive at the point where the road splits there is a large hand painted sign pointing you into the correct direction. Go early as the temperature can hit the 40C.

Excellent park. As the state border were closed (again) we chose to see this park which is most sensibly reached by 4wd. The salt lakes are fascinating and the abundance of Red and Grey Kangaroos was fascinating. We went with Pete and Jean Kelly who offer a great day out.

It’s a bit of a drive to get to this beautiful park but so worth it. The road’s pretty good so don’t worry if you don’t have a 4x4. There are some easy walks around the beautiful pink lakes when you get there and the photo opportunities are endless. You can camp in the park and the longest hike goes for about three days but you can also visit for a couple of hours. Stunning!

This is an arid desert area where the environment is relatively untouched and quite magnicient with its vast wide-open landscapes and views of arid desert and pink salt lakes. This is the largest National Park in Victoria and is typical of the Mallee outback. Access to the Pink Lakes is via a dirt track suitable for 2WD from the Mallee Highway (B12) at Linga about 60 km west from Ouyen. Take the Pioneer Drive which is well signed for the views of Lake Hardy and Crosby. There are some interesting relics from the salt mining days but go for the great views of the pink salt lakes and the arid terrain.

We did a day trip from Mildura starting at Nowingi track, past old gypsum hopper, morning tea at Rocket Lake - no water, not an overly interesting stop. Lunch at Mt Crozier and then down to Pink Lakes. Saw lots of kangaroos, lots of birds, including an elusive Mallee fowl. Would have liked to walk around Lake Harding but ran out of time as light was fading and still had a 1.5 hr drive back to Mildura but thoroughly enjoyed our day out. Finding beauty everywhere in the most unexpected places. Need 4WD.
Will definitely go back and do another area of the park next time we are up that way - it is so big!
