“amazing outback location”

Mungo National Park
Ranked #1 of 7 things to do in Balranald
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed 23 November 2017

Set deep in the outback of New South Wales, Mungo is a former Sheep station that was converted to a national park. The old Woolshed is interesting to go through. The Walls of China are absolutely spectacular, especially around sunset and sunrise, which is the best time for photos. Plenty of Kangaroos around.

A great place to visit and check out the surrounds was fine however the signage was lacking, making it difficult to drive around the park. The info at the centre was light on regarding Mungo Man and how long ago aboriginals are now recorded as having lived in Australia. No reference to the fact that his remains are soon to return to Mungo along with many others.

Our second tour this week with German. Loved Yanga and loved Mungo NP too.
This guy is so good and so passionate about the country its infectious.
The lunette is a real bucket list place to visit. No way can photos show you what it's like.
We had nibblies on the top of the sand dune watching the sunset.
Highly recommend this tour over the other on offer after talking to those who took it.

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.
