Located on the eastern edge of the Little Desert, beside the Wimmera River, Dimboola is a classic country town made famous by Jack Hibberd’s play Dimboola, and the subsequent 1979 John Duigan film of the same name about a country wedding. The national park entrance is about 4km south of town on a sealed road, but from then on it’s gravel. There are numerous easily accessed walks around the flats area along the river.
Beside the Western Hwy, about 19km northwest of Dimboola, the Pink Lake is a colourful salt lake with a bright pink-purple hue.
Ebeneezer Aboriginal Mission, near Antwerp, 18km north of Dimboola, was established by German missionaries in 1859 and ceased operation in 1904. You can wander around the well-preserved mission buildings and cemetery.
