Photographer's Note

Best opened in a new tab.

This is Lake Mungo in Mungo National Park one of my favourite national parks anywhere. We stopped there for a couple of days on our way back from the Darling River.
The lake is permanently dry and is 1 of 17 in the UNESCO World Heritagelisted Willandra Lakes Region. The area became world famous with the discovery of the remains of what became known as Mungo Man and Lady who were buried next to Lake Mungo 42,000 years ago. The area remains a major archaeological research area and is of great significance to Aboriginal people.
This photo shows the flat lake bed and on the horizon is a sculptural sand area known as the Walls of China.
I've posted photos from Mungo taken on previous visits and Lisa (delpeoples) also posted photos.
Over the next few days I'll take you around the amazing landscape (both human and natural) that is Mungo NP.
