We recently stayed (3 nights in late September) at the APT Bungle Bungle Wilderness Lodge. Hard to get to, four wheel drive only (we drove the 53 kilometres in 2 hours), but what a wonderful experience glamping in the Australian Outback. This camp is well set up with communal eating area and the "tents" are well appointed with king size... More

If you want to stay overnight in Purnululu National Park (which we did) and you are not campers (which we are not) this is your only choice. And you pay dearly for being a captive audience. But it is captivating - worth every penny. I would do it again in a heartbeat and our party of two couples regretted staying... More

The private APT campsite at Bungle Bungles is 'Glamping' (glamour camping). It has power (solar of course) for light in tented cabins but no power points, no refrigeration, no shops, no fuel.. accommodation by pre-booking only. It IS remote ! Most people fly in or come by APT 4WD "bus". Access to anything other than 4WD is prohibited. The road... More

We stayed in the twin Eco tent two nights in early June. Very comfortable and the staff are fantastic. I hope they are WELL LOOKED AFTER by APT. They add a huge amount to a great experience, with their knowledge of the area and willingness to share tips and overall friendliness and professionalism. The tents are spacious and comfortable.

We arranged for a one night two full day trip to the Bungles, using a small plane to access the area. On arrival we were met by a young man who was our guide throughout our stay. He drove us to a number of trailheads and we took a number of spectacular hikes. We stayed in a superior tent and... More

There are 2 APT camps at the Bungle Bungle's, we stayed at the newest camp also smaller than the other camp. This is the camp site they use for the promotions for the camping experience,. There is nothing I could fault, it is a destination you remember. Food was great, staff the best of all APT sites.. For the middle... More

This was our first time staying in an APT bush camp, and we really weren't too sure what to expect. I'm not such a keen camper - I like my creature comforts such as a bathroom. The APT camp at the Bungles was great! Almost a perfect combination of feeling like you're camping, while at the same time sleeping in... More

Given that this is in the middle of a very remote area, and the accommodation consists of tents, it's extraordinarily good - well done, APT! Note that there are two APT wilderness lodges in Purnululu: we stayed in Piccaninny, which is the smaller, deluxe camp, with queen-size beds instead of two singles. The tents were large and comfortable, with a... More

This is a neat place to stay if you don't want to do your own camping. We had no problems with bugs or critters in our room. Amazing temperature difference here, we arrived at our tent at about 1pm, it was stifling hot like an oven. By about 4pm it was a lovely temp, and at 4am it was 10... More
