Dramatic formations sculpted out of sand and clay

Erosion has sculpted the sand and clay into dramatic formations

The 33-kilometre crescent of the Walls of China are to be found in Mungo National Park, part of the World Heritage area of Willandra Lakes in Outback New South Wales, more than 300 kilometres southeast of Broken Hill and closer to the Victorian town of Mildura. Mungo National Park has maintained a continuous record of human occupation stretching back well over 40,000 years. Rain and wind has uncovered ancient fireplaces and hearths, as well as calcified plant matter, artefacts, stone tools and animal bones. Erosion has sculpted the sand and clay into dramatic formations that are the Walls of China.
