Sleeping bags or just swags in early July

Thanks for the previous help we have booked for the 8 day wild kimberley tour just need some more local advice. It IS camping in swags we can hire sleeping bags as extra but ta suggested we needn't bother just sheets and swag would be warm enough as it will be the 1st week in July. I wouldn't have thought it was far enough inland to get that cold o/night as I am well aware inland desert areas do, so would appreciate local advice as not fun if you can't sleep bc you're cold. What do you think?

We're going to be up there much the same time and I'll have the flanny sheets & doona in the swag.

I've been across the Gibb and into the Bungles many times and have experienced frost & ice on more than one occasion. I'd be getting the sleeping bag. And go for the layered approach in clothes. Shorts & T shirt will be fine during the day, but early morning & evening you might be grateful of the tracky dakkies over the top.

Expect the waterholes to be somewhat cool too!!

Have fun!

Just returned from the Bungle Bungles in June and would highley recommend very warm clothes and bedding at night. During the day it was beautiful but freezing at night. We all slept in many clothes, a sleeping bag and a swag.
