About this trail

During this 3.1 km nature walk to Hermans Hill Lookout, immerse yourself in the Mallee landscape. If you're lucky, you may spot a mallee fowl, diamond sand skipper butterfly, or even some rare skinks and lizards, such as the mallee worm lizard or the lined earless dragon. Watch out – there may also be snakes along the trail.

At the top of Hermans Hill Lookout, take the time to absorb the vast landscape that stretches as far as the eye can see. Marvel at this landscape which once made-up part of our vast ocean 5 million years ago. You will have a great view of Lake Hindmarsh and the Big Desert.

Ensure you carry enough water with you and wear appropriate footwear.

How to get there

Investing in nature

Hermans Hill was upgraded in 2021 thanks to Victoria’s Great Outdoors.

The upgrades included the installation of the new viewing platform, an upgraded walking track and a day visitor area.

Victoria’s Great Outdoors is boosting regional tourism and making it easier to enjoy nature by investing $106.6 million in better walking trails, campgrounds, 4WD tracks and visitor facilities.
