Mungo National Park in the heart of the World Heritage Area of Willandra Lakes in NSW. For the people of Ngyiampaa, Mutthi Mutthi and Southern Paakantyi, this extraordinary place is of great value. Mungo Lady and Mungo Man, found only meters apart, were buried on the shores of Lake Mungo more than 42,000 years ago. Mungo Lady has been cremated, the oldest ritual burials on the planet. They represent the early emergence of human spiritual beliefs and give an insight into the care provided to the kin through the deep history of Australia.
