Mungo National Park, NSW
You won't see many landscapes as starkly prehistoric as Mungo National Park. This crinkled landscape of outcrops and shifting sand is part of the Willandra Lakes World Heritage Area, a series of desiccated lakes that once stretched between Willandra Creek and the Lachlan River.
It may have been more than 14,000 years since Lake Mungo in New South Wales had water. But the sight of its shores - a 33-kilometre chain of white dunes known as the Walls of China - is sure to feed your imagination. Don't miss the sunset spectacular, when the striking chain turns yellow, orange and deep wine red.
