Arrived at Caravan Park,was pleasantly surprised,non powered site but plenty of room,I think the charge $35 for a night was a little high,for what you received. The trip out to the Bungles by 4wheel drive bus was fantastic worth every cent,the scenery was beyond belief,Radar our informative bus driver was great and gave us a run down on what to... More

We were travelling on a full 21-seater 4WD bus from our campsite for a full day tour of the Bungle Bungles which includes a hike on river bed rocks to Cathedral Gorge and Echidna Chasm. It was awesome to see and touch these ancient and huge rock formations. Worth the bumpy ride and challenging hike. A must do thing in... More

A lengthy trip in a tour bus along a bumpy road that twists and turns brings you to the spectacular Bungle Bungles. We went to the north and south ends that included Cathedral Gorge, the lookout and the Domes, Echidna Chasm and another lookout. Some walks require watching your footing on river rocks but not over challenging. This is a... More

Loved the Bungle Bungles, so amazing and beyond what I expected. We found the road pretty good on the whole, slow because of twists and turns and dodging the sharper rocks but better than Mitchell Falls road. Very basic amenities but definitely worth the stay.

We were well advised to head into the park to time our arrival with the office opening at 8am. We went straight to Cathedral Gorge, then up to Echidna Chasm for the mid day light. We had lunch then did the mini palms walk. Our kids aged 10, 8 & 6 all managed this with ease. My dad aged 60... More

The word awesome is so overused now day's. However it is exactly the correct word to describe the bungle bungle formations at Purnululu. To inspire awe! They absolutely do. There are two different areas to investigate. The north features two hundred meter high gorges with wonderful walks through to the smallest of passages. The sun lights the small passages at... More

Visited here as part of a tour. Camped for 2 nights. Explored Cathedral Gorge Echidna Chasm and took a helicopter flight with Heliwork. Overwhelmingly beautiful. Well worth the VERY bumpy journey in. 2 hours for 52 km. A must do if you can.
