The Mungo National Park is located near Mildura in the south Far West region.
Mungo National Park is part of the Willandra Lakes Regional World Heritage Area and an important Aboriginal site.
Australia’s Aboriginal people are custodians of the world’s oldest continuous living culture and the Mungo National Park offers visitors the opportunity to engage with Aboriginal guides and communities.
The park includes an ice-age lake and landforms over 100,000 years old that have changed over time to reveal significant ancient cultural, geological and archaeological properties. The Ngyiampaa, Mutthi Mutthi and Southern Paakantyi Aboriginal people have lived in the area for over 45,000 years and Aboriginal park rangers offer visitors a unique opportunity to explore sites of cultural importance and learn about the rich Aboriginal cultural history at Lake Mungo.
Tourism to the Mungo National Park and along the nearby Murray River has increased in recent decades and offers significant potential for future development.
