Mungo and the Willandra Lakes
Mungo National Park
At Mungo National Park you can visit the Walls of China, a 33km long dune or lunette along the ancient lake shore. Erosion has sculpted the sand and clay into dramatic formations. Here rain and wind have uncovered ancient fireplaces, stone artefacts and animal bones.
Mungo National Park was gazetted on the 21 March 1979 after Mungo Station was acquired by the NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service. Zanci, Leaghur and Garnpung Stations have been added since, bringing the park's total area to 110,967 hectares.
You can learn more about the area at the Mungo Visitors' Centre, enjoy signposted walking tracks, or explore the landscape by means of the 70km self-drive tour. There are camping facilities within the park, and motel accommodation, meals and drinks are available at Mungo Lodge, just outside the park boundary.
