  Walls of China
by aramat

Mungo National Park is part of the Willandra Lakes World Heritage area (received the title in 1981 due to the evidence of past climatic conditions preserved in the park's landscapes and in recognition of its Aboriginal heritage).

The formation called Walls of China is dramatic and when I was there, all the sand was powder pink. I'd never seen anything like that before, it was amazing (seen red and white and black and all shades of beige, but never pink). And there were just a few other people which made the whole experience even better.

The park is in New South Wales, the closest town is Mildura. You can drive aroun the park, but check the road conditions before you leave, as after heavy rain the dirt road becomes impassable.
