Located in Victoria’s far north-west corner, the 677,000-hectare national park is Victoria’s largest, stretching from the Pink Lakes near Underbool at its southern-most point to Lindsay Island, bordered by the Murray River in the north.
Much of the park is accessed via long sandy tracks suitable only for high-clearance 4WDs, but you can reach the Pink Lakes in the south by 2WD, via the gravelled Pink Lakes Road, off the Mallee Highway, just east of the tiny town of Linga.
The Pink Lakes section of the Murray Sunset National Park is 520km north-west of Melbourne via the Calder Highway and the Mallee Highway. Access from South Australia is via the Sturt Highway.
TWO WHEEL DRIVE-ACCESSIBLE CAMPS
The 2WD-accessible camps in the southern section of Murray Sunset NP are centred around the Pink Lakes. The largest campground is at Lake Crosbie and another smaller campground is available at Lake Becking. Park entry and camping is free and availability is on a first come, first served basis. Drop toilets, designated fire pits and picnic tables are provided.
FOUR WHEEL DRIVE-ACCESSIBLE CAMPS
Accessible by 4WD are free campsites (with toilets and picnic tables) at Mt Crozier, Pheenys Track, Rocket Lake and the Shearers Quarters. There are a couple of other designated camping areas dotted throughout the park with no facilities, suitable for self-contained campers.
