Australian Traveller

If you do three things…




The best way to get under the skin of Mungo is with a ranger who represents one of the three Traditiona­l Owner groups of the region: the Paakantji, Ngiyampaa or Mutthi Mutthi. Booking a NPWS Aboriginal Discovery Guide will see you exploring a sensitive area beyond the Walls of China boardwalk , hearing fascinatin­g Dreamtime stories and more. 2


Get acquainted with this aweinspiri­ng desert landscape by driving, or better yet, cycling the 70-kilometre Mungo Loop Track . Crossing the ancient lake bed to the Walls of China before tracing its shores, this route linking Mungo’s highlights takes in the iconic dunes and mallee country of outback NSW. Stop for a picnic lunch at any one of the lookouts along the way. 3


Cycling this 10-kilometre route, or treating it as a half-day ramble, provides a glimpse into the pastoral history of the Mungo region. Starting at Mungo Visitor Centre, you’ll pass by dunes under wide open skies – watching out for birds and other wildlife along the way – and visit the historic Zanci Homestead site, with its brica-brac of buildings and ruins including an old brick chimney.
