Overview

The Murray-Sunset National Park is the largest national park in Victoria, stretching from the Murray River at Lindsay Island in the north to the Pink Lakes near Underbool in the south. The park is one of the few remaining semi-arid regions in the world where the environment is relatively untouched. With its wide open landscapes, breathtaking sunsets and starry nights, its vastness and isolation, the Pink Lakes will take more than a day to explore. This is a great park for four wheel drive touring, bushwalking and camping. There are excellent walking tracks in the Pink Lakes area, along with a campground. Keep an eye out for local kangaroos, wallabies, emus and echidnas as you wander. Bird watchers will love the opportunities on offer, with Red-Rumped Parrots, Mallee Ringnecks, Spotted Pardalotes and White-Fronted Chats, all calling the region home. Murray-Sunset National Park is in northwest Victoria, between Ouyen and Mildura and the South Australian border. It is about 550km from Melbourne and 400km from Adelaide. Access to the park from Melbourne is via the Calder Highway, and from South Australia via the Sturt Highway. The Pink Lakes are 60kms west of Ouyen along the Mallee Highway. Turn onto an all-weather gravel road for 13kms to the main camping areas at Lake Crosbie. Access further north into the park is for four wheel drive only. Access is also possible by two wheel drive vehicles along a gravel road from Linga. For those with limited time, a drive around the Pioneer Drive (Pink Lakes) is recommended. Otherwise take a four wheel drive trip to the Mount Crozier Lookout or old Mopoke Hut outstation.

These Pink Lakes are a great place to camp. Peaceful and relaxing to stroll about. Camp sites have drop toilets but no drinking water. The Pioneer Drive is well worth the time.

What a great place, slightly off the main road but certainly well worth the side trip! There appears to be two lakes, one of which has a beautiful clean camp ground with very clean drop toilets overlooking the lake. We are already planning on bringing...More

Unfortunately for us today the Lakes were not as pink as they can be but nevertheless it is still worth the drive out there. Would be a great spot to camp if you like solitude and walking, it is very pretty. Just remember to take...More

The Pink Lakes are rock hard salt away from the edges so you can walk right across them and admire the salt formations that have build up around things caught there. Don't touch any water in holes you might find. It's putrid and stinks! A...More

Great place to go star gazing. Park is facilitated with camp sites, toilets and area to set camp fire. If you drive to mount crozier, chances to see wild kangaroos. No mobile phone reception. Great camping fun

Spent two nights camping there. It's the real deal in terms of bush camping, but oh so lovely. The sunsets were magnificent. We had a great site under a tree, with a camping table, private enough to have a shower. Uninterrupted view of Lake Crosbie....More

Sorry I missed this question, anywhere you want to go you will be fine with a 2 wheel drive up there
