NSW National Parks and Wildlife Services - Mungo Visitor Info Centre
Aboriginal people have walked here at Mungo in the footsteps of their ancestors since the Dreamtime.
Scientists have discovered artefacts of this ancient culture dating back over 50,000 years across the expanses of the last ice age. This makes Mungo one of the oldest places outside of Africa to have been occupied by modern humans since ancient times.
Visit World Heritage Mungo National Park, home of the famous Mungo Lady and Mungo Man, and explore a place rich in Aboriginal history. Enjoy a walk or picnic, or camp near Lake Mungo.
Wander the sands of time in ancient Mungo National Park at the heart of NSW's Willandra Lakes World Heritage Area. This extraordinary place is of great significance to the Ngyiampaa, Mutthi Mutthi and Southern Paakantyi people.
The remarkable archaelogical finds of Mungo Lady and Mungo Man, the world's oldest human cremations, represent the early emergence of humanity's spiritual beliefs. These fascinating 42,000 year old ritual burials, along with past human footprints, tell an incredible story about the long history of Australian Aboriginal people, and led to the establishment of Mungo National Park.
Take a guided tour to the incredible Walls of China, where erosion has sculpted sand and clay into fragile yet imposing formations; or explore on wheels with a cycling or drive tour through the stunning landscape.
Mungo National Park is always open but may have to close at times due to poor weather or fire danger.
