The Bungle Bungles in Purnululu National Park is one of the The Kimberley’s most spectacular places. Another world of ancient beehive shaped domes, gorges, towering chasms and hidden creeks, it truly is world heritage place that you should not miss, and once you have been you will want to go back (as i do…).

The massive wet season that has just concluded has affected Purnululu National Park as well, with the road in only opening up a few weeks ago, and the second campsite and half the gorges remaining closed still. This meant we couldn’t make it into Echidna Chasm or the Mini Palms Gorge, cutting down some of the sights and lookouts we could get to within the park.

To balance this up we went on a gruelling (but also stunningly beautiful) full day hike into Piccinini Creek Gorge.
