Bungle Bungles (Purnululu), Purnululu National Park
(4.9/5 based on 220+ reviews on the web)
Located inside the sprawling Purnululu National Park, a World Heritage Site, Bungle Bungles (Purnululu) 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 Bungles (Purnululu) is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our online itinerary creator, Purnululu National Park Edition.

  • If you make a tour of Western Australia you may not omit this rock formation! Sensational! So beautiful! There is no superlative that could really describe these rocks. So: Driving towards and even amazed! Difficult but in the directions. We've made it convenient us: fly into the small plane in the Bungle Bungles, pick up at the airport by a Ranger leave and spend the whole day there with walks and enjoy the towed with packed lunches in a beautiful place. In the evening again going back to the hotel. But note that it is very hot (above 40 degrees) and there are many very annoying flies. Therefore take enough water and put on a mosquito. Accommodation at the Bungle Bungles are not that great, also the directions with the obligatory four-wheel drive is long and very tiring.

  • This is simply fantastic. Best gorges in the Kimberley. We were fascinated by the diverse range of gorges, all within reasonable walks from the car parks. It was very hot and dry in October, but still...  more »
  • The park is amazing and the walks beautiful. The visitors centre was not open and in the heat there may be some who are relying on it for water and ice. We struggled a bit with the more exposed walks ...  more »
