Mutawintji National Park

Looking out over the red cliffs and soil of Mutawintji National Park. The rugged, mulga-clad Byngnano Range is dissected by colourful gorges, rockpools and creek beds lined with red gums. Mutawintji is an ancient landscape revered by the local Aboriginal people and in 1998, after a long struggle by the traditional owners, management of their land was returned to them. It is now held by the Mutawintji Local Aboriginal Land Council and a Board of Management oversees the operation of the park. Formerly called Mootwingee National Park, is a protected national park that is located in the Far West region of New South Wales, in eastern Australia.
