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

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!

Purnululu was the highlight so far of our trip to the Kimberley. The Domes were every bit as amazing as I'd heard, but there was much more that I hadn't heard of, especially Echidna - which with every twist and turn down the canyon just kept surprising (tip: keep going until you are absolutely certain you can't go any further)....

Nature is great and despite the long distance it is worthwile to go to. Especially Cathedral Gorge is so beautifull. Go early in the morning otherwise there are too many people and too hot.

Four of us had a 1 night stay in the Bungle Bungles, using the en-suite bush camp cabins (booked in advance with East Kimberly Tours!) What an amazing place, so worth a visit and so worth it's World Heritage status. We didn't manage all of the walks, just Cathederal Gorge and. Echidna Gorge plus a 30 minute helicopter flight (Heliwork)... More

Enthusiastic Staff throughout the whole Operation. The Pilots even drove the Shuttle Van . It's a 300km flight each way to the Bungle Bungle Airstrip and after the Safety briefing we... More

The road in is quite difficult, lots of ruts, plus hills and corners, so take your time, but worth every minute. The campground is good and well defined, no water, but clean drop toilets. The Cathedral Gorge, Picanninny, The Domes & Echidna Chasm were well worth the walk. Such beautiful scenery

Drove in with 4WD hired car, yes, the roads are horrible but it's an experience. Nothing to worry much about tho, we are first timers with the 4WD and did not fall into any trouble. Stayed at the campgroud at Kurrajong, which is on the north side of the park. Camp ground has non-flushing toilet stalls individually located throughout the... More
