Fascinating Mungo walking track, in Myall Lakes National Park, is a feast for the body, mind, and senses. A delightful collection of walks combine to create this absorbing track which joins Mungo Brush campground on the shores of Bombah Broadwater to Hawks Nest. It’s a long yet easy walk, taking in some important Aboriginal and post-colonial heritage sites, landforms, and diverse vegetation.

Set out towards the Myall River along Tamboi walking track arriving at the historic Tamboi village. Continuing south, meander along old sand dunes on historic mining routes, passing a part of the track between Brambles Green campground and Dark Point Aboriginal Place which is known for its splendid display of colourful wildflowers.

If you’re feeling adventurous, you can do it all in one day, or else break it into smaller sections, savour the delights and camp overnight. Alternatively, it’s a great track for mountain biking with a refreshing lake swim at Mungo Brush to round off your cycle.
