Itinerary

Experience the Bungle Bungle by air and on the ground by immersing yourself in the ancient landscape with a local guide showing you their country.

This full day tour offers a unique experience, providing guided walking tours with an Aboriginal perspective of the world heritage listed Purnululu National Park. Your local guide will take you back to a time where the Aboriginal people lived here for some 40,000 years.

This scenic flight takes you on an unforgettable adventure over the Bungle Bungle Range, Lake Argyle, the Argyle Diamond Mine and Ord River Irrigation Area. You will also fly over the stunning Carr Boyd Ranges, Osmand Ranges, the Ord River and the Bow River. Landing at a remote unsealed airfield in the Purnululu National Park and transfer to an airconditioned 4WD bus, your guide will drive you closer to the Bungle Bungle Range. Enjoy a moderate 3km guided walk amongst the famous eroded towers and black and orange banded beehive structures on the Domes Walk. Your guide will take you into Cathedral Gorge, where towering cliffs open up to form a space with awe inspiring natural acoustics, here you will enjoy you picnic lunch that is carried in a cooler bag. Walk along the bed of Piccaninny Creek, which flows only in the monsoon waterfall season. Then continue on to the norther gorges of Purnululu which are quite different to Cathedral Gorge and the Domes at the south. A 65 minute drive takes us northwards along the Western Wall of the Bungle Bungle Range. A rocky path leads your walk into Echidna Chasm, which narrows until it is just two shoulders width apart. Gazing skywards to the bright blue sky, the orange towering walls look as if they are lit from within. Livistona palm trees cling to the vertical sides. You may also have the oppurtunity to visit other walks at the northern end of the park. A high level of mobility is required for this 1.5 hour walk as it includes climbing over boulders and walk up staircases to viewing platforms at the end of the chasm. Return via a scenic flight to Kununurra, on the way viewing the Argyle Diamond Mine where rare pink diamonds are mined.
