The area is just so unbelievable, the rock formations are incredible, I spent the day oohing and aahing. The walks are beautiful though they can be noisy with other tourists. Cathedral Cavern is beautiful it is only about 1km form the car park so don't be put off by other reviews. You do need a 4wd as all the roads... More

You will need a four wheel drive to access the Bungles but it is well worth the trip. Distances between the car park and Cathedral Gorge is further than the sign says (must have been as the crow flies) but worth the walk. Take a picnic lunch and lots to drink as nothing there to buy! Some fantastic photo opportunities.... More

This was a relatively easy walk with paths to follow. The view at the top was well worth the walk. I would recommend going early morning or late evening. We went after lunch and it was way too hot.

We went here early morning and headed in for a 'quick' day trip. Little did know it was going to take 3 hours to drive 52kms. I even let my tires down to absorb a bit of the impact of the corrugations. Once we were in though we headed down to Cathedral Gorge and had a look around the southern... More

An amazing experience that is deserved of its World Heritage site status. Ideally try to view from both land & air to achieve the best possible experience.

If you have a 2 wheel drive or low clearance car then just don't even attempt this. The road in is 53km of bad corrugation, big dips, creek crossings and tight corners. On the way in it vibrated wires off my battery and the way out it vibrated the air intake off and that was with deflating my tyres. It... More

We took a 4WD bus tour of the Bungle Bungles, departing from the Caravan Park. Be prepared for a bone jarring ride, made more than worthwhile but the superb sight of Cathedral Gorge and Echidna Chasm. Our personable guide, Radar, was a fountain of knowledge and helped make the tour a treat for all. Elderly people or those with physical... More

This National Park is simply World Heritage, spectacular with the unique rock formations that make up the Bungle Bungle Ranges. The Gorges and Chasms include some of the best in the Kimberley. The World famous Banded Cones are truly remarkable and possibly exist no where else in the world. The huge variety of shapes and sizes has to be seen... More
