On the northern edge of the desert, 16km south of Nhill, this well-equipped and friendly-run bush retreat is a superb base for exploring the park. With a spacious camping ground, bunkhouse and comfortable en-suite motel-style rooms there’s something for everyone. A key attraction here is the tour of the Malleefowl aviary ($30), where you can see these rare birds in a breeding program.

It also does nightly guided tours to its sanctuary ($30) to observe the intriguing brush-tailed bettongs, as well as the Malleefowl, gliders and bush stone-curlews. A range of other tours is listed on their website.

The premise of the lodge is entirely conservation based, with its focus upon a long-term 're-wilding' project that aims to reintroduce locally extinct species such as bettongs and bandicoot into the wild. Its 120-hectare property is surrounded by a high-tech predator-proof fencing, where volunteers conduct regular surveys of local fauna and reptile species.
