Pooncarie is a pretty rural township on the Darling River, midway between Wentworth and Menindee. Pooncarie is a great place to stop on your Outback visit; you can go fishing or explore the Mungo National Park. The park contains the oldest Aboriginal burial site and where you will see the Walls of China which are spectacular crescent shaped dunes. Any spot beside the Darling River is a pleasant place to stop for a picnic.
Pooncarie to Mungo National Park is 88 kilometres of which 58 kilometres is unsealed. This unsealed section can be prone to bulldust and corrugations and closes after rain. Not recommended for caravans. For road condition updates please contact the Wentworth Shire Council.
There is now fuel and basic supplies available at Pooncarie with multiple accommodation options.
