The rugged, mulga-clad Byngnano Range is dissected by colourful gorges, rockpools and creek beds lined with red gums. Scattered among the caves and overhangs are galleries of Aboriginal rock art and engravings. The park was returned to its traditional owners in 1998 and is held on their behalf by the Mutawintji Local Aboriginal Land Council.
Car-based and caravan camping are available at Homestead
Creek (no bookings - first in, first served; no fuel or firewood available). Backpack camping is permitted within the Mutawintji Wilderness Area, with self-registration required (forms available from the Broken Hill
National Parks office). An Aboriginal Discovery program runs during each school holiday period except summer.
