Camping permits are required and fees apply. A camping tag with your booking number must be displayed at your camp site.
Please camp with minimum impact and take all rubbish with you when you leave. Read more about looking after the park.
Munga-Thirri National Park is closed from 1 December to 15 March due to extreme summer temperatures that can exceed 50°C.
Visitors must be well-equipped to cope with the harsh environment in Australia’s driest place. Munga-Thirri National Park is very remote and help can be days away. It is critical that you are self-sufficient and prepared for emergencies.
