I’m a coastal honkie. I spend 99.9% of my time hugging the beaches and rarely venture inland. Today I ended up 1000 kilometres inland for my daily shoot! On the VIC/SA borders with NSW you’ll find an ancient dried up lake now called Mungo National Park. It’s a bizarrely beautiful place with ancient sand/clay formations that look like their from the Moon, Mars and a Mad Max set.
The Mungo National Park is noted for the archaeological remains discovered in the park. The remains of Mungo Man, the oldest human remains discovered in Australia, and Mungo Lady, the oldest known human to have been ritually cremated, were both discovered within the park.
You need a certified guide to accompany you around most of the park but I found the local taxi, a Cessna Skyhawk not a bad way to check out the ancient lunette.
If you like isolation, it’s your place. One of the remotest places I’ve shot.
