Took a scenic flight from Kununurra over this attraction. The scenery is breathtaking and you receive a great perspective when viewed from the air. The colours and the different shapes and sizes of the rock formations are incredible. I think a flight at sunrise would be really fantastic to see the different effects of the sun on the rocks.

A bit of a drive to get there over dirt road (4 wheel drive highly recommended) but once there the bungles are spectacular. Beautiful views and lots of camera opportunities. Should be on very ones list to see.

The bungle bungle are a truly amazing sight with their striped exterior. We camped at the kurrajong campground which did not allow generators. Walked to cathedral gorge and the lookout at sunset to watch the ranges turn from deep red to purple. Do not miss echidna gorge. The lady at the visitor centre told us the time to be there... More

a long awaited dream to visit this place was well rewarded as we explored the many walks and were just amazed by the stunning beauty of the surrounding colourfull landscape -also viewing it from above in a helicopter gave us a totally different perspective of this world heritage listed wonder.A magical experience

......visit, explore and enjoy all that the Bungles offer! Quietness, extreme beauty, and rock formations like no where else in the world! We visited on WA day weekend, so it was free entry. Next time I visit I will fly over as well.

To enter into the park you need a 4x4 vehicle - not necessarily so much for the road itself but for the clearance. It’s a 53 km drive into the park and takes well over an hour (depending on the time of year you’re visiting). It’s quite a narrow, twisty road so you have to watch out for vehicles travelling...

We did several of the shorter walks, including Echidna Chasm and Piccaninny creek to the lookout and the beautiful Cathedral Gorge. Some of our fellow travelers broke into song in the Cathedral and the sound was amazing. There are toilets in the carparks. Carry water on your walks as it can get quite hot in the middle of the day,... More

After leaving the Bungle Bungle Caravan Park, it is 53 kilometres of gravel road into the visitor centre with 4 water crossings and another 5 or 6 dry creek crossings. Very simple crossings but allow 2 hours to get to the visitor centre. From there you can visit both north and south of the range. There are some long walks... More
