Ka Ka Mundi is a remote section of the Carnarvon National Park and is suited to people wanting to get away from it all. With more than 30km of sandstone cliffs and escarpments, rocky outcrops there is plenty for the experience walker to enjoy.
Overlooking the campsite is cave-pocked sandstone hills that are worth exploring, but remember that spirits live in these caves and will cause illness if you come into contact with them, according to Aboriginal legend.
Also close to the camp site is the Bunduncundoo Springs with their lush growths of mosses and ferns, the waters of these springs are cool, crystal clear and a good source of drinking water. The Aborigines also believed these waters had great healing powers and would immerse their children into them to cure bone problems.

Ka Ka Mundi was used as grazing land for over a century, with old cattle yards near the springs as evidence, before becoming a national park in 1974. The waters of the Bunbuncundoo Springs, which are located near the camp site, were believed to have healing powers by the Aboriginal people of the area, they also believed harmful spirits lived in the caves around the Springs.
