WELCOME TO LAKE ALBACUTYA
Lake Albacutya adjoins Wyperfeld National Park, and only fills with overspill from Lake Hindmarsh. Access is via the sealed road from Yaapeet (14km) to the main camping area. Some tracks are 4WD only.
The main feature of this park is the 5850a lake, which fills from Lake Hindmarsh when the Wimmera River is in flood. The lake generally fills and empties on a 20 year cycle, the longest dry period on record being 27 years. The park also includes Ross Lake (470 ha) and a 2.5km stretch of Outlet Creek.
Outlet Creek and the sand dunes north of the lake can be explored on short day walks or longer overnight expeditions. The park is popular for four wheel driving, trail bikes, bush walking and family camping. As weather conditions and seasons can affect the tracks, please contact Park Victoria on 13 19 63 or visit their website for up to date information on track conditions, closures and fire danger.
Lake Albacutya Park is popular for water skiing, fishing, yabbying and boating when water levels are high enough.
