Ka Ka Mundi, Carnarvon National Park

Springsure, Central Highlands Area

The sandstone cliffs of the Great Dividing Range dominate the clear blue skyline to the south as you drive across the open, undulating country towards Ka Ka Mundi. This remote section of Carnarvon National Park features more than 30km of sandstone escarpments and plateaus.

The sandstones of Ka Ka Mundi were laid down in freshwater lakes and streams about 180 million years ago. In more recent geological time, basaltic lava covered the ranges. Erosion over the ages has left only a few basalt outcrops, such as Mount Ka Ka Mundi.

Old cattle yards near some of the springs are reminders of early European history. Ka Ka Mundi was grazed for more than a century before the park was declared in 1974, primarily to preserve bonewood, softwood and brigalow scrubs.

Soak up the solitude and seclusion at your peaceful camp site beside Bunbuncundoo Springs, flanked by coloured sandstone cliffs.
