Purnululu National Park

The Purnululu National Park offers one of the most fascinating landscapes on Earth, nothing less. From a geological, biological and climatic point of view, the Purnululu is unique in the world, which allowed it to be listed as UNESCO World Heritage site. Located in the Kimberley in Western Australia, it covers nearly 240,000 hectares. Its main attraction is formed by the Bungle Bungle Range, made of spectacular domed or hives rocks resulting from 20 million years of erosion. Some rise up over 200 metres above which look like small savannahs. The uniqueness of these formations also lies in their orange and black colored bands. On site one can find many hiking trails that run through winding and majestic gorges. Access to the park is not easy, due to its remoteness and track conditions (4WD required). It is possible to fly over the Purnululu departing from Kununurra. Please note that the park is closed during the wet season, from December to early April. As unlikely as it may seem, the Purnululu was discovered by Westerners around twenty years ago but the Indigenous Australians have long inhabited the area. One wonders how many places as magical as this are still unknown to the general public!
