I was wondering if it was worth spending a day driving into the vast nothing of outback NSW just to see sand dunes - but can report that my skepticism was ill founded. We visited in September - so we dodged the summer heat (and flies).
The two highlights were
a) Taking the foreshore walking trail. This short walk has a lot of variety and we were astonished how many of the flora and fauna illustrated in the digital guide book we actually saw. The signs along the way are very good - we learned a lot.
b) The lunettes - we visited mid-afternoon and so the sun wasn't low enough to bring out the details on the eroded pillars - but the wind got up and the resulting sand storm created a lovely mystical atmosphere. With a telephoto lens you could get excellent close up pictures from the board walk.

Some hints:
1. Getting there - Mungo National Park is about 2 hours drive from Muldura We took the Top Hut Track from the Pancarie Road. It was in good condition except for a few pot holes by the cattle grids. Although this route is longer than the direct road to Mildura it is surfaced for 1/2 the way and so is an easy drive.
e. The Gas BBQ at the visitor centre takes $1 coins ONLY - so if you want to cook anything for lunch then bring at least two coins.
3. Download the digital guide book to Mungo from the visitMungo website - It is excellent reading before and during your stay

Camping facilities excellent. Large and varied sites, friendly and helpful staff. Clean drop toilets.
Guided tour of the Walls of China with Lance was first class and gave us a great insight into indigenous culture and the history of Mungo.
The self guided drive tour was worth doing particularly with the background of the guided tour.
Lots of kangaroos and both sunrise and sunset were spectacular and almost as good as the night sky.

First time visit to Mungo National Park. Entry fee is $8.00 per day. Good visitor centre with videos and walls showing history and information. No one there at the time so I think it's not always staffed but no doubt rangers are about.

Did the self drive tour which is 70km loop around the park. Totally amazing and so quiet and beautiful. Good camp options as well though it's no campfire so make sure you pack the right gear if you want to cook.

Definitely a place to visit.

I had wanted to see Mungo for some time to experience the unusual lunette landscape. It is a remote location serviced by quite good quality gravel/sand roads and has very little in the way of services. No fuel, mobile service, water,food etc and you need to be self sufficient.
We camped at " main camp" and it is set up very well with pit toilets, some rainwater tanks, level sites and fire pits. Cost is $8 per person per day and $8 entry fee per car per day.
We decided to do the tour, $50/$35 concession , and that was a highlight for us. Learning about mungo woman and man was eye opening and the possibilities of civilization 20-40,000 years ago!
Lots of wildlife and lovely sunsets also.

We booked through the Mildura Tourism centre for the 0900 tour. Drove our awd 100 km on the unsealed roads to the Mungo Tourist lodge taking 1.5 km each way. Surface was easy to Mungolodge and it got a little rougher out to the Walls of China but still easy to travel at 60-80km. Watch the weather forecast in the morning as rain will close the WOC. Great tour guide , good level of information and easy to self navigate.
