While Little Desert National Park has small connotations, you can expect big things from it.
Located 375km west of Melbourne, between the Wimmera River and the South Australian border, the park offers changing landscapes and diverse flora and fauna that can be explored by car, on foot or by four-wheel drive.
Travel through pure mallee heathland, rolling sand dunes, and on to the cypress pine and casuarina woodlands in the west.
Four-wheel drive enthusiasts will be delighted to hear there are many four-wheel drive tracks that traverse the park, fit for both amateur and experienced drivers.
These provide a fantastic opportunity to experience the challenges of sand driving and can give a great sense of the desert environment without venturing too far off a sealed road.
