Hi all. On our way at last on a 2 week adventure though western NSW. Overnight tonight at Swan Hill then onto Mungo main camp site tomorrow morning. Just wondering if anyone of you lovely people are up there now. Is there room at the camp site? Would love to catch up for a beer! Isn't it the best feeling to get away from home/work and off into this wonderful land of ours.?

See you out there

Graeme

Just in case you do not get any responses, unfortunately there isn't any mobile reception at Mungo camp site, unless the situation has changed in the last 2 years. You can get some signal at the back of the Walls of China if on top of some of the sand dunes.

Hi. Thanks Paul. I had thought that might be the case even though the Telstra coverage map shows some coverage. Not surprising really. Lol

Thanks again

I'd love to hear what the place is like. A friend is heading there in a few weeks, and I'd never heard of the place before, but sounds like a very interesting area.

Mungo is great for a relaxing stay, there are hot showers at the main information centre near the woolshed, which is a 1.5km down the road from the main camp. Toilets and wood BBQ's at the main camp with plenty of space for caravans and campers.

There is another more secluded campsite half way around the loop drive, which takes you on a trip around the Walls of China with a few other historical places on the way. We go back every few years on the way to somewhere else because we think it's great and the local rangers fill in the blanks with good information, and, they also have a good supply of firewood for a small donation.

Thanks Paul. We are just reps king the car and about to head up to Mungo from Swan Hill. Sounds like a great place. Can't wait for the experience and the kids are so excited about getting out and looming for some treasures in the outback. Thanks

We stayed there a few years ago and found the "main camp" impossible for normal caravans over 15ft. We ended up going to the camp spot half way around the loop mentioned by Paul. It is much better, plenty of free space.

Cheers

Don't agree with the above statement, we were there in 2010 with a 20 ft van and had no trouble at all.

Go caravaning, life is so much shorter than death.

I will be there in about 2 hrs so I will let you know how we go for space next time I have reception. We are in a tent so no issues for us hopefully.
TA.

Worth a look on Google Earth before you get there - the series of ancient lakes in the former watercourse is helpful in appreciating the place.

This reply is probably too late but we find staying at Turlee Station the better choice then the dust bowl out at Mungo.

Showers/Toilets etc, plenty of firewood and pleasant surroundings,

Not to far away from the national park

Thanks Jeff. We were actually going to stay at Turlee. The kids were very excited about camping on an actual sheep station. But I rang 2 days before leaving to check we were ok to camp and they have closed the camping area and are selling up! When we past by on Monday looks like it would have been nice. Anyway. Main camp was great. Only a handful there and we managed to find the late night party people who for some reason seem to want to share their conversations at full bore with the rest of us! Sweet revenge at 6 am when I let the kids lose to blow off some steam!
Now just arrived at Menindee and have a beutiful spot out on our own right on a little beach. Kid heaven!
