Mungo is one of a handful of places where you can see the extraordinary effects of erosion on the landscape. Red Top lookout and boardwalk is an unbeatable vantage point, offering bird's eye views of the park's remarkable deep ravines, rippling patterns and rich textures.
From Mungo Visitor Centre, it's an easy half-hour drive to the lookout via the Mungo Self-guided Drive tour. Along the way, you'll find signs discussing the long-term climate changes that led to the lakes in Mungo National Park drying out.
Don't forget your camera as there some attention-grabbing views, continue along the drive to nearby Rosewood picnic area for a picnic lunch.
Take a virtual tour of Red Top lookout and boardwalk captured with Google Street View Trekker.
