Mungo Madness by FireflyPhotosAust Mungo Madness by FireflyPhotosAust
Sunset on the Wall of China in Mungo National Park which is located in the Willandra Lakes World Heritage area. Mungo National Park at its centre, maintains a continuous record of human occupation stretching back well over 40,000 years. Rain and wind has uncovered ancient fireplaces and hearths, as well as calcified plant matter, artefacts, stone tools and animal bones. At the 33 kilometre long crescent of the Walls of China, erosion has sculpted the sand and clay into dramatic formations.

I am so jealous of you. I would love to go to this place. We were on our way a few years back and the van died. It was such a disappointment. How was the heat at this time of year???

I have wanted to visit there for a quite a while now Gayle and I'm so glad that we made it there. Beau had told me a few things about the location before I went there. The heat wasn't too bad if you cn cope with 44 degrees!! That was only for the first two days and then it cooled down:-)
