Please note

If you’re camping in Mungo National Park you’ll need to book your campground online. When making your online booking, you'll also need to pay your park entry fees.

Stop at Mungo Visitor Centre, located near the entry to Lake Mungo, for excellent displays and free tourist information before exploring. You can also join a Willandra Lakes guided tour here.

Find out more about this area's important Aboriginal cultural heritage and significance. Learn about the rich archeological evidence, megafauna, the once-full Lake Mungo, and the park's unique landscapes.

The visitor centre may be staffed for short periods during school holidays, when rangers from the region's 3 Aboriginal groups lead guided tours. Why not try the 2.5 hour tag-along tour to the Walls of China? Or, pick up the free brochure 'Driving the Mungo Story' from the centre to follow a self-guided driving tour.

Take advantage of the picnic, barbecue and toilet facilities here before exploring. You don't have to go far, as the visitor centre is next to historic Mungo Woolshed and Mungo Shearers' Quarters. It's also the starting point for Foreshore walk.
