Venture into the New South Wales Outback and visit the spectacular dunes of Mungo National Park, the main feature of the Willandra Lakes World Heritage area. Situated 110 kms from Mildura and 315 kms from Broken Hill in south-western New South Wales, this National Park is a series of lake beds that dried-out around 14,000 years ago.

With the human remains of Mungo Man and Mungo Woman found here and having been dated back to over 40,000 years ago, indicates that the Aboriginal people inhabited the area during this time, making this the oldest known site of human occupation in the Southern hemisphere.

Walk amongst geological history and be fascinated by The Walls of China, a 33 km long crescent shaped formation of dunes, created by hundreds of years of sand storms, standing protectively over tens of thousands of years of history.

This area has long been a significant site since the dream time for Elders and caretakers of the land. Covering 240,000 hectares of ancient lakebed ready and waiting to be explored on guided tours offered by local Aboriginal tribal groups.

There are a number of ways to discover plant matter, animal bones and ancient artefacts exposed through natural erosion in this particularly fragile environment. With a range of walking tracks from easy to moderate, self drive options and of course, guided tours.

Coordinate your adventure with the full moon to ensure your experience of the Walls of China is nothing short of spectacular.
