The Sunset Remote Walking Track is a 58km, grade 4 circuit hike located in the Murray-Sunset National Park, Victoria. The hike should take approximately 3 days to complete.

Summary

Lying in Victoria’s northwest corner is Murray-Sunset National Park, an untouched semi-arid wilderness known for its low-lying Outback landscapes and entrancing pink lakes.

This hike is a grade 4, desert scrub walk, best completed over 3 days. the hike is intended to be walked clockwise (as per notes from the ranger), although we completed it anticlockwise over 3.25 days, by walking into the first water tank (approx 5km) in the late afternoon.

Best time to walk late Autumn to early Spring. Unlikely to be any water in creeks, water only at water tanks, status should be confirmed with local ranger prior to walk.

Notes and Map available from local ranger in Underbool.

About the region

The Murray-Sunset National Park is the second largest national park in Victoria, Australia, located in the Mallee district in the northwestern corner of the state, bordering South Australia. The 633,000-hectare (1,560,000-acre) national park is situated approximately 440 kilometres northwest of Melbourne and was proclaimed on 26 April 1979. It is in the northwestern corner of the state, bordering South Australia to the west and the Murray River to the north. The Sturt Highway passes through the northern part of the park, but most of the park is in the remote area between the Sturt Highway and the Mallee Highway, west of the Calder Highway.

Tips

Contact local ranger prior to walk is required. Water tanks can be empty.
