Purnululu National Park September 2012

It is best to visit the national park earlier in the season rather than later. We went on 24 September, planning to spend two nights in the park.

On arrival at the entrance we saw a notice on the gate that the northern section had been closed off because of a fire but the southern section was open.
At night we were informed that the whole park was closed because of the fire danger and that we were required to be escorted out in a convoy, led by a fire engine. at 7am the following morning. It was scary.

Next time we will visit in June or July and certainly not in September or October!

Mmmh, it's a pity. I spent 3 days there in September 2006. We had 40C and it was awesome!
