This was fantastic for nature lovers, so many walks and so much to see. A beautiful full moon rose after taking stunning photo's of the Bungle Bungles at sunset and a dingo howled as we headed for camp, a magic end to the day.

Purnululu has been on my bucket list for ages, and to be there was just one of those magic moments in life. The only negative was the roads. Man, I don't know how the Department of Parks and Wildlife manages it, but their parks must have the worst roads in the world! We may have visited twenty of their parks... More

The rock formations and colours were amazing and quite unique. We really enjoyed the Cathedral walk and the walk to the Dome, although it was really hot when we did it. If we had known more about it in advance, we would have stayed overnight at the Caravan Park just inside the National Park gates, and done the walks as... More

We stayed at Bungle Bungle bush camp in a self contained cabin. We self catered but catering available. Bruce was very welcoming. Pool fabulous after a hot day enjoying Cathedral Gorge and the Domes. A must see.

The road out is very rough so if you don't want to drive you can always take a tour 4WD bus trip out there! How ever you get there....just make the effort....you won't be sorry! It is the most spectacular geographical formations covering such a massive area and should be seen at some stage in your life. Don't leave out... More

The two-hour drive off the highway into the park (4WD only) is a joy in itself. Plan to change drivers at the turn-off, though, as you will want to be fresh. I wouldn't fancy doing this if you've already done 400km! But this place is wonderful - particularly recommend Cathedral Gorge and Echidna Chasm - both easily do-able in a... More

Take the bus tour into the Bungles and do all the bushwalks to really appreciate how unique this area is.

lots to see and do. Over the 4 days we visited Cathedral Gorge, Tunnel Creek, Echinda Chasm, Picanny Lookout and the Domes. Took so many photos, which don't do justice to what we saw. We travelled with APT Wilderness Tour and all the locations had walking accessible for the youngest, oldest and those of us up for more adventure. A... More

We had the pleasure of spending 2 nights, 1 full day exploring this unbelievable landscape. Nature at it's very best. 4 years ago we flew over them from Kununurra, going in there and walking them is absolutely superb, not to be missed indeed. Make sure that you see Echidna Chasm, in our humble opinion THE best spot of the lot!
