  • When planning to visit Lake Mungo National Park we consulted the website and rang the Visitor Centre. At no stage - from either source - was it clear that access to the park was effectively limited.....  more »

  • My favourite place on earth! An archeological paradise.
  • This is one of the most magical places that I have been; and I've been many places. To be in this desert which was once a lake and see the fish bone fossils and the Aboriginal tools that are still to be found. To tour with a very knowledgeable Aboriginal guide and learn about the white and Aboriginal history. To watch the sun set over the lunettes and see the colours change. To watch the wild life. How anyone could say that this place is boring, I simply cannot understand. If you want to stay at the shearers quarters, make sure that you book a few weeks in advance, but the camping is good if you are not that organised or prefer camping. One thing (maybe this has changed now after we complained) online it said that you can't bring in any fresh fruit or vegetables; this is incorrect; you can bring them in if they are bought in local towns. We were cross when we found out that we could have brought in fresh food, as we love our fresh fruit and veg. Camp kitchen is good.
