Mungo Brush Road is the main vehicle access for visitors, commercial fishers, tourism operators, emergency services and the local community to the south eastern section of Myall Lakes National Park, linking the townships of Tea Gardens/Hawks Nest and Bulahdelah.
A 3.2 kilometre stretch of Mungo Brush Road was relocated due to constant westward shifting of Dark Point sand dune.
The previous road ran alongside Dark Point Dunes, a 250-hectare mobile sand dune complex with cultural significance to the Worimi people. Each year this expansive dune spreads 3.3 to 5.9 metres in a westward direction.
The new sealed, dual lane road runs west of the former Mungo Brush Road. Mungo Brush Road links southern Myall Lakes National Park with Tea Gardens, Hawks Nest and Bulahdelah.
The old section of road has been rehabilitated back into the National Park. The re-establishment of the roadside vegetation will continue with landscaping maintenance works into 2020.
