We are looking for an interesting way to travel from Melb to the Flinders Ranges via Mildura. We want to get off the beaten track a bit - any good spots to camp and visit on the way. Leaving Melbourne on 17th May so not far away.

How about going out through Wyperfeld National Park. Second option is to go up the Calder to Hattah and into the Murray Kulkyne and camp along the river. Another option, turn left at Ouyen and out to Underbool and then head into the Pink Lakes. Wend you way through the Murray Sunset towards Last Hope Tank and then east out to Hattah and either left to Mildura or head straight into the Hattah Kulkyne as above and then wend your way back through Colignan & Nangiloc to Redcliffs (Past Lindemans Winery so stop in a refresh supplies ;-)

Murray Kylkyne

Murray Sunset

Cheers Mick

P.S. Don't turn right onto the Raak Plain LOL

Thanks Mike - sounds like a good option - we liked the thought of the top up at Lindemans

Melbourne,Euchua, follow the Murray to Mildura, out to Mungo National Park, Menindee Lakes then to Broken Hill, west to Yunta, then right towards Lake Frome and across to the Flinders Ranges.

Hi Baz - have looked at that route on the Map and it seems to be a great option getting us up to the Flinders Range and Arkaroola - we just hope that the roads are all open towards Birdsville when we get up that far. Thanks

Just below St Arnaud on the Sunrasia Hwy - Teddington Reservoir campground - excellent spot - was there about 3 weeks back - birds, roos, fresh air - plenty of firewood laying around - a great overnighter.
Lake Hattah should be worth the visit too, seeing there is water in the lakes now - when there a few years back, it was totally parched.

Great camping in the Little Desert National Park by the river near Dimboola. Some awesome exploring there too. You could check out the Grampians on the way.

If your looking for a nice campsite and nearby bush 4wding , then ->

Camping at Glenpatrick Reserve in the lovely Pyrenees Ranges, just north of Elmhurst between Ararat and Avoca on the Pyrenees Highway.
(1 hr from Ballarat)

Its the site of annual exploroz Vic gathering organized by Bonz as listed currently under members trips.

I'd then continue up thru Wyperfield at another free campsits like Big Billy etc
to Mildura , then kick of with a stop In Dangali - but thats in S Australia so you may have to watch out for Yabbawocks.
