The Bungle Bungles can be found in the World Heritage listed Purnululu National Park of Western Australia’s Kimberley region. Purnululu, meaning ‘sandstone’, has long been inhabited by local Indigenous people, but the rest of the world did not know of its existence until the mid 1980s. You can explore the range on foot and discover long narrow chasms and hidden gorges large enough to hold a full-scale concert. You may also encounter some of the 130 bird species found here and unique native animals including the nailtail wallaby and short-eared rock wallaby.
One of the world’s most fascinating geological landmarks, the orange and black sandstone domes, known as the Bungle Bungles, rise 300 metres above the grass-covered plain of Purnululu National Park in Western Australia.
