The Willandra Lakes World Heritage Area, including Lake Mungo National Park, covers 240,000 hectares of a semi-arid mosaic landscape of interconnected dry lakes. Crowned by lunettes large enough to be seen from space, the lakes bear witness to extensive human occupation for more than 40,000 years.

Day 2: After breakfast at the Lodge, set out on your first days walk through undulating mallee and spinifex country.
