Patchewollock is a rural village on the eastern edge of the Big Desert (Mallee) in north-west Victoria, about midway between Warracknabeal and Mildura. Until 1986 it was the terminus of the railway from Warracknabeal and Hopetoun. The boundary of the Wyperfeld National Park is about 10 km southwards, where the typical Mallee plant system of Eucalyptus and Porcupine grass are found. It is thought that the name Patchewollock is derived from an Aboriginal expression meaning plenty of porcupine grass.
