Postcode: 4871

Mungana, 15 km from Chillagoe, in north Queensland, Australia, was once the site of copper mines that featured in the Mungana Affair.

To the north of Mungana is The Archways, an open daylight cave system with maidenhair ferns growing in the passageways, and an Aboriginal art site with a number of interesting paintings on the cave walls.

The Chillagoe Mungana National Park is a small park west of Cairns which preserves dry woodland vegetation, boasts a number of decorated caves and some unique limestone outcrops.
