We drove in in our own vehicle and booked into the safari tents. The road is OK for 4WD, though there are lots of creeks to cross so you won't get in if it is too wet! After the ground trip, I booked a helicopter and flew over for a birds eye view---well worth it. This is a well run... More

The 4WD-only track into Purnululu is like driving through a landscape painting. Once in the park, the Bungle Bungle Range dominates with a number of highlights including two basic campgrounds and two safari camps. Don't miss sunset at Walanginjdii Lookout; a walk to Echidna Chasm, Mini Palms Gorge and Froghole Gorge in the northern end of the park. In the... More

Flew into The Bungles from Kunannurra on a light plane taking in the breathtaking views of the landscape but nothing can prepare you for the actual Bungles. The heat, the smells, the views, the experience was beyond description. Hiking down Piccaninny Creek, walking through some of the gorges, resting in the shade beside reflective ponds. The overall experience takes on... More

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
