How to get there

Wonga Camping Area

Wyperfeld National Park is 450 km north-west of Melbourne.

Wonga Camping Area is in the south of the park and can be accessed via a sealed road from Rainbow or Hopetoun.
Some tracks in the park are narrow and have deep sand. These are suitable only for four-wheel drive vehicles with good ground clearance. Smaller four-wheel drives may have difficulty. 

If you plan to explore the remote west of the park, check with rangers for current track conditions, especially after wet weather and during high fire danger periods.
