Mutawintji (pronounced moot-a-wint-ji) National Park, the sacred heart of the Byngnano Ranges, was once a busy meeting place for Australia’s ancient indigenous inhabitants. Their dreamtime stories, history and teachings adorn rocks and caverns, as stencils and engravings, providing a unique insight into the life & culture of the Australian aboriginal people. Mutawintji holds evidence of Aboriginal occupation dating back over 8,000 years. 

This tour will take you on a 4WD adventure from the ever-changing landscapes of the Barrier Ranges to the spectacular gorges and caverns of Mutawintji National Park. With its creeks and rock holes lined with majestic river red gums, Mutawintji means “place of green grass and water holes”.
