Foreshore walk is a 2.5km, grade 3 Circuit hike located in the Mungo National Park, NSW. The hike should take approximately 45mins to complete.
With its exquisitely sculpted sand dunes, hardy, gnarled trees, grassy woodlands and age-old lakebeds, the Foreshore walk incorporates the natural wonders that probably first inspired you to visit Mungo National Park.
Beginning behind the Meeting Place, near Mungo Woolshed, this easy walk leads you across the bluebush-covered shoreline of ancient Lake Mungo. Follow the markers up the western shore’s extraordinary red dune to behold the last of a once-extensive forest of mallee and white cypress pines.
After pausing a moment in the pines’ welcome shade, you can extend your walk by continuing along Zanci Pastoral Loop. Otherwise, follow the track back to the Meeting Place where you can stop for a picnic and be astounded by the replicas of ancient human footprints.
As you take this walk, see if you can work out what the pink cockatoos eat and where the kangaroos shelter from the heat. And don’t forget to read the explanatory signs as you go. These offer valuable information on the park’s plants, wildlife, landscape and conservation
