Bungles Bungles – Purnululu National Park – Western Australia
Without doubt the most identifiable image of Western Australia’s Kimberley region is the strange shapes of the Bungle Bungles. Situated in the Purnululu National Park the “Bungles” as they are known locally are one of the world’s most unusual geological formations.
Thousands of beehive shaped hills and mounds rise up out of the plain, striped in red, orange and black bands these hills have been described as a wonderland that waited three hundred and fifty million years to be found.
You can reach the “Bungles” by 4 wheel drive from April to December (camping only) however the best way to see them is from the air and fixed wing flight seeing trips operate from Kununurra and helicopter flights are available from the nearby settlement of Turkey Creek.
The Bungle Bungles are East of the main Great Northern Highway north of Halls Creek and are included in several of our self-drive tour suggestions.
