A visit to the Kimberleys would not be complete without taking in some of the breathtaking scenery at Purnululu. It's hard to believe this World Heritage area was only 'discovered' in the 1980's! Echidna Chasm was a relatively easy walk with lots of good photo opportunities (particularly if you can cope with the heat and make the most of the... More

One of Australia's greatest spots spent two days in the park. Three would be better if you have the time do the helicopter trip also. Worth every cent fascinating place and every walk is different. Glad I got here

We did a helicopter flight with HeliSpirit which left from the Warmun Road House. It was absolutely spectacular and the best dollar per minute value I could find. Our pilot was extremely knowledgeable and filled the entire flight with worthwhile information, both on the history and geology of the area. One of our little treats to ourselves during our big...

If you are passing here you must spend a day or two here. If you dont have a 4WD there are lots of local companies that will take you in here, judging from the number of 4WD buses we encountered. If you have a 4WD you can drag your camper trailer in here if it only has one axle or... More

totally worth the effort to get there. If you are sensitive to culture, you may think about NOT swimming in Cathedral Gorge - our tour provider offered little insight into the cultural significance of the site - after visiting and learning more about the site, the Bungles clearly have a great deal of cultural significance e.g. a women's place in...

We drove in ourselves (4WD) and found it a challenging but enjoyable track, as long as you take it easy (approx. 2 hours). You definitely need to concentrate though as there are ditches, twists and turns (almost giving a feeling of being on a rollercoaster), corrugations and river crossings. However, that's just part of the fun and the landscape is... More

I first visited the Bungles 10 years ago but wanted to go again now the kids were older. This is a truly unique landmark and well worth the effort to get there. We did several hikes including Echidna chasm and Cathedral good. All walks well marked and relatively easy for young and old if you have a reasonable level of... More

Lots of walks for all different levels of fitness. The Cathedral Gorge was a stand out and is one which should not be missed. Almost feels like it is manmade it is so perfect. The acoustics and scale are mindblowing. If you get to one walk, make it this one. Second on the list should be Echidna Chasm, a narrow... More

Bungles Bungles is different to other ranges. The road is very rough impossible to do in a normal car. We were on a tour & back seat people hit head on roof. Cathederal Gorge is worth the walk but when in gorge be careful walking on sandy rocks as very slippery. Echidna Chasm is worth the walk but is over... More
