About this spot
A chain of ancient dried-up lake beds and sand dunes make up this archaeological wonderland, an isolated, lunar landscape rich in natural beauty. It was here that the remains of Mungo Lady and Mungo Man, said to be roughly 40,000 years old, were discovered, preserved by low humidity and carbonite present in the sand. This makes Mungo one of the oldest places outside of Africa to have been occupied by modern humans since ancient times. The site is protected under the UNESCO World Heritage list.
