Opening times

Mungo Visitor Centre is always open, but it is not permanently staffed. During school holidays the centre may be staffed for short periods. To talk to someone about Discovery tours and staff timing, contact the Buronga park office on (03) 5021 8900.

Please note
  • If you’re camping in Mungo National Park, you’ll need to fill out a self-registration form at the visitor centre – even if the centre is unstaffed at the time

Begin your exploration at Mungo Visitor Centre, the ‘nerve centre’ of the park. Find out more about the area’s significance to its Traditional Owners and scientists. Learn about its megafauna and the once-full Lake Mungo, as well as the formation of the park’s unique landscape.

The visitor centre is staffed only during school holidays, when rangers from the region’s three Aboriginal groups lead park Discovery tours. Why not try the 2.5-hour tag along tour to the Walls of China? Alternatively, you can take the Mungo Self-guided Drive tour with the free brochure ‘Driving the Mungo Story’, available from the centre.

Adjacent to the visitor centre is the historic Mungo Woolshed and Mungo Shearers' Quarters and it is also the starting point for Foreshore walk.
