Phil, we have covered this in our personal trip journal. Sorry its not in a trek note format - I wasn't collecting enough data at the time. Oh well, better go back eh? wadda ya think? Its a bizzare place, smaller than you think but worthwhile I think. Camping is good from my point of view. Roads easy. Fuel no worries, water no worries. Go for it!

Hi Phil, We visited Mungo a few months ago. The Roads to the park are all formed roads and no problems for a 2wd. There are two campgrounds at the Park – the one at the main entrance is well laid out with heaps of room, toilets, tank water, fire pits and even a shelter with a gas BBQ. The second camp area – Belah Camp-is in behind the “Walls of China” - about 30 km in on the loop road that take you on a one way trek through the Park – This second camp ground has no facilities and I don’t think you are permitted to have a fire.

You can also stay at the old Shearer’s quarters, which are near the Visitors Centre.
The phone number for the NPWS at Buronga is 03 5021 8900, give them a call and they’ll give you all the info and send you a map etc.

You wont have any problems in a 2WD (unless it rains), we had a friend tag along in a sedan and never missed a beat. Fuel is available from Mildura – 110km or Ivanhoe –191km.

It’s an amazing place, and take heaps of film. We’re already planning our next visit.

Are you sure of the telphone number? Mungo is in NSW. 03 area codes are Victoria.

HI Phil , It’s the number for the NPWS Lower Darling Area Office, they are situated in Buronga which is on the border. The number is correct 03 5021 8900.
