Purnululu National Park, or the Bungle Bungles, is one the world’s most beautiful areas to be discovered as recently as it has. Not thirty years since its discovery, this majestic 239,723 hectare range located in Kimberley, Australia, features utterly unique and beautiful layered sandstone domes closely resembling beehives.
Once inhabited by aborigines, in this amazing park you will discover gorges, wallabies, and fan palm trees. In the plains surrounding the sandstone domes you can catch exotic plant-life, such as beautiful bright yellow acacia flowers and grevilleas.
The only way to discover the Bungle Bungles is on foot, but with temperatures averaging more than 30 Celsius (86 F), so make sure you come prepared. Luckily, on your journey you will discover fresh-water rock pools, so refilling bottles and going for a dip is only part of the fun.
Good commentary. The headphones were a good idea so we could easily listen.
Really enjoyed the flight, after which we were given a DVD. Unfortunately the DVD is badly made and poorly presented. What should have been a reminder of a fun trip is in the rubbish bin.
The most typical way to access the park is by 4-wheelers, which follows
the Spring Creek Track from the Great Northern Highway. If you decide to
make the trip from Kununurra the route is approximately 155 miles long,
quite a hike, however if splurging is an option you possess, you can
catch a helicopter out of Turkey Creek Roadhouse.
