Wander the sands of time in ancient Mungo National Park at the heart of NSW's Willandra Lakes World Heritage Area.

This extraordinary place is of great significance to the Ngyiampaa, Mutthi Mutthi and Southern Paakantyi people, whose connection with the land reaches back more than 40,000 years.

Remarkable archaeological finds like Mungo Man (the world’s oldest human cremation), Mungo Woman, and human footprints dating back to the last ice age tell an incredible story about the long history of Australian Aboriginal people.

Take a guided tour to the incredible Walls of China, where erosion has sculpted sand and clay into fragile yet imposing formations; or explore on wheels with a cycling or drive tour through the stunning landscape.
