Hike Summary

The vast desert wilderness of Mungo National Park hums with life, and this short, easy track will delight and awe in equal measure. Wheelchair friendly Grasslands Nature trail, near Main campground, takes in the grasslands, shrubs of bluebush and copper bush, woodlands of Belah, cypress pine, and mallee scrub of this World Heritage region in outback NSW.
This outback wilderness is a haven for wildlife, so grab your binoculars for the birdwatching experience of a lifetime. Look in the branches of the towering black cypress and belah trees for wedge-tailed eagles and whistling kites. Brilliant crimson chat flit among the scrub, and a massive flock of pink cockatoos is a sight worth going to see.
To get the most out of your visit, why not join an Aboriginal ranger on a Discovery tour? While suitably inspired, be sure to check out Mungo lookout and Mallee Stop walking track.
