While a lot has been written about the Bungles, we found it to be truly fascinating. The remote location makes it a bit of a challenge even to arrive at the station right off the highway. The road from the station to the park entrance made us totally thankful that we took the 4WD bus tour option - it’s a... More

Make sure you make the effort to walk to as many gorges as possible as each one has a unique aspect to it.

Travelling in the Kimberley can be a challenge. Getting into the Bungle Bungle range by road is not a comfortable ride. We travelled with Bunglebungle expeditions on an off-road bus, great driver with expert knowledge. However you travel by road you will experience a roller coaster ride of continual corragations and vibrations that will loosen your teeth! Radar our driver... More

The Bungle Bungles are in a remote corner of the Kimberley, in rhe far north of Western Australia. Even by Kimberley standards, the Bungle Bungles are remote. It's tough country, even for 4WDs. The Bungles Bungles are fascinating but facilities are limited. Most locals recommend taking a light plane tour, where you can see the Bungle Bungles in all their... More

My third time there and it has not changed at all except on one occasion the water pools made for better reflections if you are a photographer.

Breathtaking, certainly the highlight of the trip to the Kimberley. It is really worth doing the helicopter flight over the Bungle Bungle, plus various walks down the gorges.

We had read a lot of varying reports and advice about driving into the park independently, and in the end decided just to go for it. We have a standard 4wd, not a high clearance. The road was in really good condition, from the entrance it took us 1 hour 30 minutes to get to the visitor centre and then... More

I decided to drive into the Park from the caravan park out on the highway. It is only 53 kms so it should not be that bad!! WRONG! One of the worst roads i have ever been on. and on a recent trip around Australia by far the worst. I think the government needs to step in and do something... More

Great place for a visit. Long way in and the road had just been graded so was better than some reports that i had heard. Camp site was nice and spacious and plenty of toilets. No showers. Very scenic and do some research to find best times to see certain areas. Well worth a visit however try and spend more... More

You need to book online before you venture in to the park to avoid disappointment. Purnululu National Park is definitely worth a visit. The road in, takes time as everyone says, you have to cross some rocky creek beds and it weaves around the escarpment. It is 4x4 all the way. The visitor centre is well run and give advice... More
