Lake Mungo is a remarkable place, so much so it recognised with World Heritage listing, and is where you’ll find the Walls of China, an icon not only for the sheer beauty of dramatic formations but also for the amazing spiritual significance of the area.

Lake Mungo is unique in relation to anthology as processes evidence of continual human habitation for 40,000+ years.

The lake is one of 17 dry lakes which forms the Willandra Lakes (World Heritage Area) and the evocative Walls of China has been created over the millennia through a process of both wind and rain; sediment has been deposited on the eastern bank of the dry lakebed and has, in turn, been eroded by the rain to reveal a myriad of textures and colors.

For those wanting to also visit Broken Hill, the Broken Hill Loop can be incorporated.
