Purnululu

The Bungle Bungle range in the World Heritage Listed Purnululu National Park is one of Western Australia’s most fascinating landmarks and the ultimate place for outback adventure.

Here you camp out under the stars, four wheel drive across rugged terrain and hike through gorges millions of years old.

The area in the East Kimberley region also has great Indigenous cultural significance which dates back 20,000 years.

From the air, the Bungle Bungle range is an awesome site, rising 300 metres out of the plain. The orange and black stripes of these massive sandstone structures are breathtaking best seen from above in a scenic flight. As you sweep over the range, a hidden world of gorges and pools is revealed with fan palms clinging to walls and crevices in the rocks.

The park covers nearly 240,000 hectares. Despite being made of soft sandstone the range has survived for more than 350 million years.

Tours, including scenic flights, are available from Kununurra and Broome.

Camping in Western Australia’s natural areas is a special experience. Selected campgrounds from across the state are now bookable online for a trial period.
