About this park
The Purnululu National Park is World Heritage Listed and for good reason!
Check out the 350-million-year-old, striped sandstone domes of the Bungle Bungle Range from ground level or in the air - drones are not permitted in the park, but a helicopter or light plane tour is an awesome photo opportunity.
Wander along ancient creek beds and through striking gorges that transform into a golden paradise late in the day.
Load up the four-wheel drive and visit in the dry season during April to November and camp at one of the campgrounds in the park.
Review - Truly remarkable
This should be on your bucket list… If you come, make sure that you stay for a few days and try to include a chopper flight as well as a walk to Echidna Chasm and Cathedral Gorge. I am sure that there is even more to do here.” CorvettePete - Trip Advisor.
Plan when to visit and be prepared. Read this safety information about bushwalking. Consider traveling with a personal location beacon (PLB) or satellite phone. In the event you need to be rescued it could save your life!
This park is very remote with limited available supplies and untreated bore water. Visitors must carry in all water, food, fuel and other supplies. You will need supplies for three days (even if you are staying one) and enough fuel for a minimum of 300km. Purnululu National park covers vast distances, so a day trip is not recommended.
