Murray River Road

Mungo Self-Guided Drive Tour

Mungo self-guided drive tour, also known as Mungo loop track, is a brilliant introduction to the awe-inspiring desert landscape and a chance to experience the historic significance of Mungo National Park in comfort. Crossing the ancient lake-bed to the Walls of China, the route takes in the iconic dunes and mallee country of outback NSW, before tracing the north-east shores of the lake.

To get the most of your outback tour, drop by Mungo Visitor Centre and pick up ‘Driving the Mungo Story’. Stretch your legs at Walls boardwalk and then continue onto Red Top lookout and boardwalk which overlooks the dunes.

Pull up for a bite at Rosewood picnic area before taking a short walk on Mallee Stop walking track. Round Tank picnic area and Vigars Well picnic area are the last stops before picking up Zanci Pastoral Loop. Vigars Well dates back to the earlier settlers and from here, there’s access to the mobile dunes overlooking the majestic Mungo dry lakes. For an extra challenge, try cycling the track by mountain bike.
