A crescent-shaped dune, called the Walls of China, stretches along the eastern shore of the dried up lakebed of Lake Mungo. Erosion by wind and water leaves behind a landscape of outcrops and shifting sand revealing ancient fossils and evidence of the aboriginal inhabitants of long ago when the water flowed.
In 1969, the remains of a cremated skeleton of a human were found, later to be known as Mungo Woman. Six years later, Mungo Man was found buried. Both skeletons are estimated to be 40,000 years old.
It's a photographers paridise and the reason why we drove all this way so there is much more to come over the next week.
