DAY 6 – Monday 19th DISCOVER MUNGO NATIONAL PARK

A real adventure today as we travel back 60,000 years to Mungo National Park, a series of dry lakes now, but still a haven for native flora and fauna. A guide will travel to Mungo to explain the history of the park and ensure that all significant areas are visited. We enjoy a picnic lunch in this truly unique location that is world acclaimed for the significant archaeological finds made during the 1960’s. The focus on Mungo National Park is directly related to the intensity of the erosion on the sand lunettes, aptly named “The Walls of China”. In fact, almost all of the significant discoveries made throughout the entire region have resulted from the natural wind erosion often accelerated but not necessarily initiated by post- European settlement. We travel back to the motel for a true explorer’s rest.
