Bungle Bungles

Today was THE BEST!  My favourite day exploring the breathtaking Bungle Bungles in Purnululu National Park!  Yet another scenic flight in a little 10-seater and our first magical glance at one of the most fascinating geological landmarks across Australia. The bright orange and black stripes across the beehive-shaped towers are clearly visible as you approach from the air. We also flew over Kununurra, magnificent Ord River, Lake Argyle, Lissadell station, Texas Downs station and the rugged Osmond Range.

And what better way to get amongst the beehive domes than taking a guided walk through the mesmerizing Cathedral Gorge. Here in the shade of the gorge we could enjoy a picnic lunch.

This wasn’t enough for me…..I opted to take yet another flight in a door-less helicopter to sweep further into the range, where a hidden world of gorges and pools are revealed, with fan palms clinging precariously to walls and crevices in the rock. After this adrenaline rush it was time to head to the ‘Bungle Bungle Savannah Lodge’ for another afternoon ‘dip’ to cool off in the pool.  What a special day this was…
