Big Desert Sunset Country The Outback Travllers Track Guide

Big Desert Sunset Country The Outback Travllers Track Guide

05th January 2014

The Big Desert - Sunset Country region of Victoria is a 4WD experience that encompasses everything from hard clay tracks to very soft sand with many bog holes and bees.  Some areas are quite remote and you may not see anyone all day then by confronted with a convoy of 4WD's from a local club or various families driving their way around the many tracks.  There are several campsites, may with toilets and water set up by rangers and monitored on a regular basis.  You will cross open plains, clay pans, country road to demanding sand dunes with the occasional small township within the vicinity.  There are the salt lakes at Rocket Lake and Pink Lakes, including Lake Albacutya that remind you of the dry, harsh environment that is typical of this region, not to mention several ancient lake beds and swamps you track through.  This is an amazing location shrouded in wildflowers during spring and offering ecosystems unique  with wildlife.

Locations:  Nhill, Yanac, Murrayville, Berrock State forest, Rocket Lake, Big Desert State Forrest, Murray Sunset NP, Linga, Underbool Wyperfeld NP, Lake Albacutya, Pink Lakes, Wirrengren Plain.
