Bungle Bungles from Warmun Turkey Creek - 1 day with 3 kids
(Beachmere, Queensland, Australia)
I have read in detail all the information and conversations about the Bungle Bungles and the time it takes to get there. I understand the time issues!
Has anyone done the trip in one day from the Turkey Creek Roadhouse? It seems this may be viable (more so than from Kununurra or Halls Creek anyway). We are used to travelling and getting up early.
I thought it would be easier to leave our tent pitched at the roadhouse, leave at say 6am, and spend a day doing 2 walks - one in the morning, one afternoon, then drive back late afternoon before sundown. It would take us an hour to pull our tent down/pack up and another hour to repitch it, so we save 2 hours not relocating anyway!
Any thoughts on this? Has anyone else done a day trip from Warmun Roadhouse? Is it safe to leave our tent there while we venture out for the day?
We have 3 children (7,8,9) and yes they are fine for long distance driving. Regarding walks though... we prefer walks up to 1 hour, perhaps a bit longer. Cathedral Gorge and Echidna Chasm maybe? Can anyone who has children suggest the best walks for kids? Also, are there any good spots to have a quick dip/swim in late June?
I would appreciate any advice at all!!
