Wyperfeld National Park is 450 km north-west of Melbourne (Melway ref: 520 A3). A sealed road provides access to the main Wonga camping/picnic ground from Hopetoun or Rainbow. Casuarina and Snowdrift camping areas are reached from Patchewollock on unsealed roads (suitable for two wheel drive) or by four wheel drive from Underbool. Four wheel drive access to the western park areas is via the Nhill Murrayville Track, but check with the rangers during wet weather.
All camping areas have one or more non-flush toilets, picnic tables and fireplaces. Wonga, Snowdrift and Casuarina Camping Areas are accessible by 2WD. Round Swamp along Millmed Road Track is accessible by 4WD due to sandy soils. Northern Remote Camping Area is accessible by hiking 20km from Wonga Camping Area.
