Will Purnululu be open in May 2010?
I read on the CALM website that Purnululu has been shut down for the remainder of the year because of bush fires. I also read that re-opening the park on April 1, 2010 will be dependent on how severe the Wet was and how much damage was done by the bush fires to infrastructure in the park.
I am planning a trip to the Kimberley for May 14-31, 2010. Visiting Purnululu will be the highlight of the trip for me. I will need to commit to airfare and other reservations by March 2010.
I am sure there have been bush fires in the park in the past. In your opinion, how severe were this year's bush fires? Do you have a guess whether Purnululu would be open by mid May 2010?
Thanks for your time.
