Who said outback camping has to mean roughing it? At Main Camp, you'll find good basic facilities, including an amenities block, barbecues and picnic tables. Plus, it's just a short drive to Mungo Visitor Centre, where you can access hot showers, flush toilets and a public phone, so all the creature comforts are within easy reach.

With its 33 roomy sites, there's plenty of space for your caravan, as well as for those with camping trailers and tents. The campground's location close to the park's entry and several attractions makes it a convenient place to base yourself and soak up this fascinating ancient landscape.

Spot kangaroos, fire up the barbecue and have an old-fashioned sing-along.  Immerse yourself in the area's rich Aboriginal history on a Discovery tour, or set out on the Grasslands Nature trail. And, of course, no visit is complete without a sunset visit to Mungo lookout. Located within walking distance of the campground, the Walls' extraordinary colours and captivating scenery are sure to remain in your mind's eye as you drift off to sleep.
