Lake Mungo - 18th September 2009

A lake that has been dry for thousands of years, the highlight of Lake Mungo is the lunette on its eastern shore. (It's also known as the Walls of China, but we feel it doesn't quite live up to that moniker.) Formed from years of west blowing winds, the lunette is impressive both scenically and archaelogically. Whilst walking through the clay outcrops rising up from the dunes, I look carefully for any remains of bones (the ancient remains of Mungo Woman and Man were found here), but I'm not sure if I spot anything.
