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.
Using Google Street View Trekker, we've captured imagery across a range of NSW national parks and attractions. Get a bird's eye view of these incredible landscapes before setting off on your own adventure.
Protecting and preserving the Aboriginal culture and heritage of Mungo National Park, part of the Willandra Lakes Region World Heritage Area, is a joint effort. NPWS collaborates with representative elders from three local Aboriginal tribes to help manage this special and ancient place.
