Wycheproof is an unusual town with a very wide main street – known to the locals as Broadway – and a huge grain silo. Mount Wycheproof, at 43 m above the surrounding flat countryside, is said to be the smallest registered mountain in the Australia. It has pleasant views over the town and the surrounding plains. From 1978-1988 the King of the Mountain race saw men carrying 70-kg bags of wheat racing each other up the hill. There are walking tracks around the mountain and it is sometimes possible to see emus and kangaroos. Mt Wycheproof is geologically known as a ‘metamorphic boss’ or a granite eruption. These unique granite outcrops feature a very distinctive botanical composition, quite different to that of the open country. The lightwood wattle, acacia implexa, is particularly impressive in spring.

It’s not a world you can experience just driving through; it’s a world you need to stop, look at and consider. Don’t assume there’s nothing to see or do. Like many things in life, the Mallee’s beauty is in the detail. Not far from Wentworth is the Murray Sunset National Park which is one of Victoria’s largest national parks. The Mallee Highway is the southern boundary of the Murray Sunset National Park which joins with the Murray River and South Australian border to the west. In this seemingly vast landscape, the Mallee’s richness is in the smallest detail, like unique wildflowers and the rare and shy malleefowl, the passionate and welcoming communities and determined Mallee heritage. The Mallee seems to have the fluffiest clouds and on a clear night there’s a trillion stars sprinkled across the sky. This is a very proud community and region to explore… there’s nothing like the Mallee anywhere else in the world!
