I visited up there donkeys ago and it was a spectacular sight after rain i have heard after the fires the regrowth is worth checking out . go and do a quick loop at the least and let us know how you went .
Big desert is up that way too (another nice place or my favourite is Hattah lakes good spot to walk and veg out especially if there is water in the lakes. plenty of goannas emus and skippies up there and galahs to wake you up.

I agree with all of the above. When I was there in '99 they were busy working on the camp sites. Whyperfield gives you a feeling of remoteness. Did not drive right through the park as some of the tracks were washed out and we weren't set up for 'offroading'. I drove through Big Desert in 2001. Got caught in the rain. It was very slippery and spent most of the track in 4wd. There is a good campsite on Lake Hindmarsh a short way west of Jeparit. You could also drive through the Murray-Sunset NP past the Pink Lakes and Rocket Lake. All pretty remote so close to 'civilisation'. Hattah/Kulkyne NP is also very nice as stated by Toonfish. Have a good time.Cheers, Willem

There is no water at Hattah/Kulkyne - Lake Hattah is full of trees - though the camping area is still ok - no water at Mournpoul either apparently
this was at New Year can't see it would have changed much in this short time. Still good places to go around Hattah/Kulkyne .
