Exploring Mungo National Park
Located in the remote bad-lands of south-west New South Wales, Mungo National Parks is one of the best-kept travel secrets in Australia. With millions of tourists flooding into Australia every year, Mungo tends to be overlooked in favour of Ayers Rock and the Whitsundays. But the truth is, Mungo is a spectacular desert wilderness, with endless empty sand dunes and wildlife abound (including some crazy-ass!). Sand-erosion from ancient Lake Mungo has formed some insane patterns and structures that have stood the test of time, while the unsealed track around the park is littered with kangaroos, cockatoos and emus – making it a roadtrip to remember!
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.
Here you can explore the remarkable story of how a culture was able to stay strong and care for Country in the face of extreme climate change, change that dried up the lakes that were the lifeblood of the region.
It’s a beautiful, peaceful place around 6-hours drive north of Melbourne. Well-worth a long weekend adventure and to get you there, Johnny Feelgood offers Wicked Campervan hire at extremely affordable rates!
