Of Australia’s ancient geological and cultural history, this Park is readily accessible by an excellent unsealed but well-graded road from Mildura. Only a 1.5 hr drive, Google maps has the right road, but a fallacious travel time; it occasionally rains, and the road will be affected. The visitor centre is informative on the fascinating lunette geology and its erosion, and on the recent European pastoral history. In respect for the three indigenous tribes that care for the land, there is not so much info on the ancient indigenous peoples, but the November return of the mind-boggling 40,000 yr Mungo Man should address this. Self-touring is possible, but organise an indigenous tour guide to give real context and depth to Lake’s story.

This place is quite magical and well worth the effort to get there.

The visitors centre is well worth the exploration

The drive out to the viewing areas is also very good

The place is marred by signs and the bulldust of not being allowed off viewing platforms and boardwalks.

You are able to if you go on a PAID tour.

I am sure my taxes and park fees paid for all of that....by all means go, and make your own decisions on whether to abide by the signs.

Driving into the park is like driving through a moonscape, it is quite surreal. It appears like you are driving through a crater of some sought, it is a wall that has been created by winds and sand.
The information centre was unmanned but had a lot of information.
We did the drive tour and had a great time just sitting and watching the birds and the emus.
We were dissapointed that we could not get out to the Walls of China without going on an organised trip. In all of the information we had read about the park, we did not find any information to say that they were accesible only by guide, we didn't know this until we arrived at the unmanned information centre. Given that one had left only 20 minutes before we arrived and the next one was not for a few hours, we were not able to go out there. It would. Be great if this information was more easily found, along with the times of the tours.

The 2 hr dirt road drive from Mildura was long and very bumpy, with many cattle grids along the way but doable for those without 4wds. we got to the national park and enjoyed strolling through the old shearing shed. then we thought we would take a self guided driving tour around the park, but after we reached the first lookout point we found that we were unable to get up close to see the great wall of china. It has now been closed off to the public and is only accessible by tour guide. A 1.5 - 2hr tour can be booked but we found once we arrived that the tours were already booked out for that day, so we were forced to take photos from the 2 viewing platforms only. A long way to drive to not be able to get up close. so my advice is it is definitely worth the visit, but don't forget to book the tours yourself before you leave, and bring your own water, as very limited supplies there. Suggest avoiding middle of summer as a 2 hour walking tour could be a bit uncomfortable at that time of year. Great for international tourists to get an idea of the vastness of this country. Also great archaeological significance

Its a long trip mostly on gravel road, it was hot & windy with clouds of flies, so our experience was a little clouded. The main attractions are spectacular but can be viewed in a short time. Probably better to go on an organized tour.
