Bungle Bungles Kununurra - WA Landmarks

Landmark: Bungle Bungles
Address: Great Northern Highway, Purnululu, 6770, WA

The amazing bee-hive shaped rock formations have been familiar to Indigenous Australians for centuries, most European Australians have only become aware of their existence since the 1980's. The Bungle Bungle are nestled within the 45,000 hectare Purnululu National Park in the Kimberley Region where they stand majestically 200 to 300 metres above the grassy tableland.

These intriguing domes have been created from the weaving streams of ancient rivers over hundreds of years that have left behind a combination of rocks including sandstone. Water would soak into the soft layers of rock enabling algae to grow in bands and otherlayers coated in iron and manganese would not allow water to soak in, resulting in black and orange bands circling their curious shape.

Camping is permitted in the Bungle Bungles within the Purnululu National Park, the park is divided into two parts the Kurrajong Campground and the Walardi Campground. For an unforgettable experience a walk to Cathedral Gorge, Piccaninny Creek is a must and is located near Walardi Campground while Kurrajong Campground is located near the Echidna Chasm and Mini Palms gorge walks. Each campground has specific areas for generators and quiet areas and both campgrounds have bush toilets and bore water taps. There is also a caravan park located 1 kilometre after turning off the Great Northern Highway, on the road into the Purnululu National Park.
