The information centre as the first point of call enhances a visit to the park. You need to allow a good couple of hours to take in all the information which is well done. The surrounding area is worth taking in especially the shearing shed...More

Definitely worth a visit, the landscape and old sheering sheds are fantastic, one thing that lets it down is the lack of details about Mungo woman and man....surely there is far more information than what’s available at the visitors centre.
