Mungo National Park is a special place for me, and not just because it is overwhelmingly beautiful, but also due to the fact that it was the first NSW Outback place Iâ€™ve travelled to – this was the beginning, beginning of my long never ending plan to see every corner of Australia.
Originally built as a temporary set for an Australian blockbuster movie â€œThe Man from Snowy Riverâ€ in 1981, Craigâ€™s Hut is now a very popular tourist attraction. Located not far from the Mount Stirling summit, it perfectly complements astonishing views of Victorian Alps, creating even better landscapes.
Black head, at first, seems to be a very usual rock platform, the same as tens of others in the Sydney region. In addition to that, it is not marked as a tourist attraction of any kind.
Despite of this, head is very popular – here you can spend all day looking for fossils.
Black Head is considered as one of the best places for fossil hunting on the coast, if you know what to look for, you can find examples of fossil trees and, with additional luck, small sea creatures.
It is a 2 hour drive from Sydney to Gerroa (140 kilometers). Parking is at the end of Stafford Street.
Don’t forget – digging, breaking or removing the rocks is prohibited, all you need is to know what to look for.
