Bungle Bungle Range, Purnululu National Park

4.9
Located inside the sprawling Purnululu National Park, a World Heritage Site, Bungle Bungle Range is a range of beehive-like mounds composed of ancient quartz sandstone, which was eroded over a period of 20 million years. These unusual and imposing towers, with steeply sloping surfaces distinctly marked by regular orange and black stripes, hide a world of gorges and pools, with palms growing out of crevices in the rocks. A circular topographic feature 7 kilometers (4.3 mi) in diameter is clearly visible on satellite images of the range, believed to be an eroded remnant of an ancient meteorite impact crater. Visitors to this area must carry their own food and water if they plan to use the park’s campgrounds for more than one day. Bungle Bungle Range is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our online itinerary creator, Purnululu National Park Edition.

    The Beehive kusuhara rather Bungles. Can a photo in the Park are several view points are clean. Beehive can be seen from above in a helicopter, we saw Trek from the bottom. Just around the corner, whilst many relaxing hours walking between the Beehive was a very good experience. Walking take a lot of water.

    Beautiful national park! We have done it with a 4WD camper, 53 km "rugged track". A super experience, Walardi and 1 night 2 nights on campground on campground Kurrajong. Self sufficient for food and drinks concerns, because there is really nothing. The camps are about 10 km from the walks and lookouts, gorges. Piccaninny Cathedral Gorge, the Domes Walk, and certainly Echidna Chasm Walk, make sure you in between 11:00 and 12:00 you are then the sun shines in the Gorge, beautiful colors!!!
