Purnululu from the air
The Bungle Bungles or Purnululu is an experience not to be missed. I was not ready for the scale of the rock formations and the dramatic colours of them.
We spent two nights in the Bungles, one at each camp, in August 2006. The weather was great, not too hot, although the nights were pretty cold. The walks to Palm Gorge, Echidna Chasm as well as Cathedral Gorge were all great, I can highly recommend them. We did not do the walk to Piccaninny Gorge due to lack of time.
The helicopter flight was fantastic to appreciate the scale of the area and the magnitude of the formations.
