Hattah-Kulkyne National Park lies in typical mallee country with extensive low scrub and open native pine woodland. Superbly adapted birds, animals and vegetation thrive in the poor, sandy soils and searing summers. The freshwater Hattah Lakes is seasonally filled by creeks connected to the Murray, providing food and shelter for waterbirds and fish. Camping, walking, bike riding and canoeing are popular here and in the adjoining Murray-Kulkyne Park. Enjoy bird watching, with a rich variety of birdlife ranging from wetland species such as pelicans, ducks and spoonbills to dry mallee specialists such as the Malleefowl and Emu Wrens. When in flood, the lakes are part of Australia's significant wetlands. At the Lake Hattah camping area there are suitable tracks for cycling around Lake Hattah and along the river. When the water levels are suitable the lake is excellent for canoeing. During flood times the water can extend many kilometers from the lakes. The Hattah-Kulkyne National Park is about 450km from Melbourne off the Calder Highway, between Ouyen and Mildura. The Park is 35km north of Ouyen and 74km south of Mildura.

We went into Hattah-Kulkayne National Park on our way to Mildura. We went into Lake Hattah and were quite surprised to see the area underwater. There was a sign which stated that the area was closed due to environmental watering. The bird life was amazing...More

Absolutely wonderful national park with new but simple facilities. Traveling with two families it was just delightful and had a sense of isolation considering there were other families near by. Lots of wildlife and walks. Recommended.

Has some short and longer walks to do if you want to get up close and check out the vast acres of mallee bush. If you're not into walking (or long walks), you can take a scenic drive, there's some information about the drive and...More

It's nice for a day trip just to have a look around. See some mallee dragons which are small reptiles scurrying around. If your lucky you might spot a mallee fowl and its nest. If your a naturalist I would add at least another day...More

I was rather disappointed by the poor signage in this National park, we found it rather difficult to navigate, also did not find the online booking system easy to use, it gave us no options to select which campsite, and was also surprised at the...More

I was really keen to get to this national park, which by chance we were passing by on the road from Mildura to St Arnaud. Unfortunately our Mildura stay was too short to head out to Mungo or into Little Dessert, so Hattah-Kulkyne was the...More

This has traditionally been one of my favourite places to drop in and camp the night and stay a day or so - with several walking tracks among many almost dry lakes (which concentrates the birds and other wildlife). In recent years, water has been...More
