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

Chose to do the full day Fly,4WD,Hike Lunch & Return Flight trip with Aviair (formerly known as Sling Air) . $750 seemed a lot but absolutely well worth it. 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

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

We completed all the walks available except the over nighter. The rocks are exactly like you see in the pictures and each walk shows you a different view.

Well worthy of its World Heritage listing, the sheer scale of this remote and eroded set of landforms is amazing. For any geologist, landscape lover, or wilderness enthusiast, it scores full marks on all criteria. Trails are well signed and marked, but do take plenty of water as there are not facilities to purchase or fill up bottles. The road... More

Purnululu Nationall Park Great park, shame about the road Park is well worth the effort. This was our second overnight visit and we will probably go again. Observations/suggestions Avoid the Bungle Bungle Caravan Park if possible. Road in is OK but take care of the sudden tight bends, poor visibility due to dust and a couple of the creek crossings...

We booked a flight over the Bungles. When we got there we decided to do a longer one. The pilots were very helpful with our booking and taking us at a good time. They were also knowledgeable about other aspects of the park. Best way to see the extent of the park. Great experience.
