THE BUNGLE BUNGLE RANGES
Located in the World Heritage listed Purnululu National Park in the heart of the Kimberley region, the Bungle Bungle range are truly a sight to behold. Known for their distinctive beehive like shape, these massive and ancient landforms were formed millions of years ago. They are made primarily of sandstone and various types of rock and it is this layering which produces the unusual orange and dark grey banding effect that is so spectacular to behold. Revered by its Aboriginal custodians, the Indigenous people are thought to have lived in the region for more than 40,000 years. Opt to take a tour of the Bungle Bungle ranges with an Aboriginal guide and you will learn more about ancient rock art, burial sites and the sacred culture that runs deep through the region.
For those looking to see truly understand the scale of the world famous Bungle Bungles there is an option to fly from Kununurra and see this landmark from above. The tour begins with an early morning flight departing around 9:00 am where you’ll get a glimpse of some of Lake Argyle and the Osmand Ranges before circling the spectacular beehive domes of the Bungle Bungles. You’ll then land and transfer to a 4WD for a guided tour of the domes from below, making the most of this magnificent region.

Continue on the vehicle as you explore the bush and learn about the local wildlife and fauna, and enjoy riding through all the different terrain and getting to places you would never be able to on your own.
