Today your adventure begins with a scenic flight departing Kununurra, passing over the Lake Argyle, Ord River Irrigation Area, Carr Boyd and Osmand Ranges, Ord and Bow Rivers and Bungle Bungle Range. Your plane will land at the remote and unsealed Bellburn Airstrip in Purnululu National Park, where you will be met by your guide from Bungle Bungle Guided Tours. From here, you will be driven in an air-conditioned 4WD vehicle to the beginning of your walk. Your guide will lead you on a moderate 3km walk throughout the famous eroded towers and beehive-shaped domes on the Domes Walk. Head towards Cathedral Gorge, where you can walk alongside towering cliffs which create phenomenal natural acoustics within the Gorge. Refuel with a tasty picnic lunch after a morning of exploring. You will then head out along the rocky creek bed of Piccaninny Creek, which only flows during periods of high rainfall.
After a day of exploring, relax in your cabin, or else by the pool at Bungle Bungle Savannah Lodge, and take in a beautiful East Kimberley sunset. Dinner is served at the Lodge at approx. 6:30pm, and can be eaten either inside the lodge dining room, or under the stars in our alfresco dining area.

This morning enjoy a delicious breakfast before embarking on your Northern Tour of Purnululu National Park. For a different view of the Bungle Bungle, this tour will take you through Echidna Chasm and the northern end of Purnululu National Park. This tour begins with a 45-60 minute drive along the western side of the Bungle Bungle Range. Follow your local guide along a rocky path nestled between cliffs into Echidna Chasm. At points, this path can narrow to a width of less than 1.5 metres. On either side of you, towering walls of orange stone scattered with Livistona palm trees will reach skywards, seeming as though they are lit from within. As this walk requires a significant amount of climbing over boulders and navigating ladders, we advise this tour is suitable only for those with full mobility. This tour also presents the opportunity to visit nearby walking trails at the northern end of the Park. You will enjoy a tasty picnic lunch whilst enjoying the spectacular scenery of Purnululu National Park.
In the afternoon, return to Bungle Bungle Savannah Lodge to relax after a day of amazing adventures.

After lunch, meet the courtesy bus from your accommodation and be transported to Lake Argyle. Enjoy commentary about the local area, communities and industries with our experience driver. Stop at the Durack Homestead Museum and learn about this pioneering family before meeting up with your skipper for the afternoon
As the old saying goes, “red sky at night, sailors’ delight” and there’s no better way to experience a breathtaking Lake Argyle sunset than out on the water! On our popular sunset magic cruise, we’ll explore the rugged northern end of Lake Argyle while navigating through some of the lake’s 90 islands and inlets. Our Skipper will entertain and inform with commentary on the natural history and development of Lake Argyle, The Ord River Irrigation System and the Aquaculture Industry. You’ll encounter Rock Wallabies, Crocodiles, Wallaroos (Euros) and the diverse array of birdlife that call Lake Argyle home. You’ll be delighted and awed by the Archer Fish that shoot water up at your hand with amazing precision. You’ll watch a Catfish feeding frenzy (also known by the fancier term of ‘Silver Cobbler’) and perhaps you’ll even be enticed to come back out on one of our fishing trips. As the sun sinks behind the glorious Carr Boyd Ranges, you’ll enjoy a complimentary drink and a light snack to make the most of this magic time of day. With rugged red cliffs reflecting into the blue water, Lake Argyle is the ultimate place to catch the last golden rays of the Kimberley sun.
Courtesy transfers back to your accommodation after the cruise in the evening.
