Opening times

Mungo Visitor Centre is always open, but it's 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 Buronga office.

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.

Mungo Visitor Centre is the perfect introduction to an adventure in the World Heritage-listed Mungo National Park and Willandra Lakes. 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 is staffed only 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.
