Discovery of the Bungles/Purnululu?
by David O
I read here that the Bungles were "discovered" in 1983, "established in 1987 and skyrocketed to world fame"... Well, I was there in 1986 as part of Operation Raleigh:
We discovered some "previously unknown" Aboriginal rock art... Good story? Did we help it shoot to fame? Is there any detailed archives/records etc?
I'd love to know and will see if there's any photos I can find (probably not as I spent the next 8 years in South America!)
