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 only one night. Our friends felt it compared favourably to safari tent experiences they have had in Africa. The staff were charming, the tents were well appointed, with comfortable beds and good en suite bathrooms. There were only 16 of us "in camp" the night we were there and nibbles and drinks were served around the campfire. We then decamped to the open-air meals area, where we sat around one big table and enjoyed a delicious meal (included in the tariff, along with the cooked breakfast). For an extra fee, we had packed lunches for our day in Purnululu. I had been advised to book early, but I suspect that unless APT has a tour in, there is usually availability. A highlight of our three-week trip.
