The Meeting Place


Head to the Meeting Place at Mungo Visitor Centre to learn about Mungo Man and Mungo Lady. While the remains are kept private for cultural reasons, the lunette-shaped viewpoint here symbolises and commemorat­es their ancient resting place and that of countless Aboriginal ancestors. You’ll also see casts of fossilised human footprints found in a clay pan that date to around 20,000 years ago: the largest known collection in the world of such prehistori­c footprints.
