MUNGO MEETING PLACE PROJECT

In 2010, we were privileged to be part of team assembled by Epacris Environmental Consultants that was successful in winning the $0.8m tender to undertake a major upgrade of the Mungo National Park visitor centre experience within the Willandra Lakes Region World Heritage Area.

Nature Tourism Services' role in the Epacris project team was to undertake – in close collaboration and with input from other team members - the overall conceptual/interpretive/exhibition planning and graphic design/signage production required for the project.

This approach led to the construction of an outdoor amphitheatre adjacent to the visitor centre that could function as a meeting place where guides could commence and close out their tours with appropriate supporting infrastructure.

This meeting place includes a replica section of Mungo's renowned fossil human trackways - the oldest and most extensive collection of ice age human footprints in the world. The setting was also designed so as to facilitate its use for a range of other interpreted tour activities as well as to serve as a venue where the elders could gather when on site.
