This campsite is located in Big Desert State Forest
Its name sounds contradictory, but this forest is part of a broader habitat that includes sandy plains. Hundreds of plants and dozens of reptile species call this arid but striking region home. Wild dogs also live here, so leave pets at home. A 4WD is needed for the forest’s black-soil floor, which is slippery when wet. From Murrayville on the Mallee Hwy, head south for 10 km down the Murrayville Track and take the signposted turning onto Firebreak Track.
