Purnululu National Park (Bungle Bungles)One of Australia’s most unique landscapes and millions of years old, the Bungle Bungle’s beehive domes are no longer a secret, but they still retain a magical and spiritual impact on all who discover them.
Earning a place on the National and World Heritage lists, Purnululu National Park is home to the Bungle Bungle Range of Western Australia's Kimberley region. 350 million years in the making, it's the most unique and captivating range on Earth. Take in the full spectacle of these curious beehive domes on a scenic flight from Kununurra, Broome or Halls Creek, or an open-door helicopter flight from Purnululu itself. Covering almost 240,000 hectares, the area has long been used by Indigenous people during the wet season, when plant and animal life was abundant. Yet the Bungle Bungle Range remained hidden from the outside world until 1983, making it one of the best-kept secrets in history. Stay overnight, hike to Cathedral Gorge, Echidna Chasm and other hidden gems. Take a four-wheel-drive safari or immerse yourself in over 20,000 years of Indigenous culture. Selected national park camping grounds can now be booked online. Other accommodation and experiences can be booked through local operators. Tours operate from Bungle Bungle Caravan Park. Purnululu National Park is opened from April until December (conditions permitting). Tourists are advised to check for alerts and road/park closures before commencing their travel on www.emergency.wa.gov.au and https://alerts.dbca.wa.gov.au
