Mallee Stop walking track
The Mallee Stop walking track offers a fascinating introduction to the breathtaking scenic contrasts of outback NSW. Wander through an environment that is at once harsh and beautiful; the ground like a moonscape but brimming with plant life; the red earth stark against an impossibly blue sky.
Pack a picnic lunch and set out from Mallee Stop, positioned on the eastern side of Lake Mungo along the Mungo Self-guided Drive tour. Be a part of Mungo’s history and add your footprints to the sand as you tread this flat track through the heart of mallee country. You’ll loop through an area of mallee eucalypts, then head over a low dune studded with pointy spinifex grass. The track also features signs explaining the diversity of the mallee species encountered, as well as other equally significant plants and Mungo’s fauna.
When you return to Mallee Stop, pull out that picnic and relax in the peaceful surroundings. You may even see a kangaroo or two bounding by.
