Information

Mungo National Park is where the 40,000 year old Aboriginal remains of 'Mungo Lady' and the 'Mungo Man' have been found. Also recently, some 130 sets of 30,000 year old footprints in various sizes have been found in dried up clay. The area is a series of 5 major lakes that formed over 50,000 years ago and dried up about 5,000 years ago. The Willandra Lakes World Heritage Area, with Mungo National Park at its centre, maintains a continuous record of human occupation stretching back well over 40,000 years. Rain and wind have uncovered ancient fireplaces and hearths, as well as calcified plant matter, stone tools and animal bones. At the 33km long crescent of the Walls of China, erosion has sculpted the sand and clay into dramatic formations. Mungo is jointly managed by DEC and representatives from the Barkindji, Mutthi Mutthi and Ngiyampaa peoples.
