Taken in Mungo National Park – NSW – Australia.
Took the long drive up to Mildura in the northern part of Victoria for my cousins engagement party and thought that I would also take the opportunity to drive out to Lake Mungo, where stand the “Walls of China”. Ancient clay formations from a time when the climate in the sub-desert region was substantially wetter. Within the clays lie fossil remains which achaeoligist say are the remains of some of the earliest settlers in Australia.
The drive is relatively short from Mildura, about 1.5hrs. But most of the drive is on unsealed and corrugated roads, unaccessable when wet.
If you get the chance to go, make sure you tell someone your plans and take plenty of water as temperatures in summer exceed 40C (104F). There is no mobile phone coverage and very little water.
