Day 2

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.

Echidna Chasm - Bungle Bungle 2 Night Stayover

Day 3

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.

Whilst providing informative commentary, the Skipper guides the specially designed vessel amongst numerous inlets and bays in search of local wildlife including Freshwater Crocodiles and their many nesting sites. The cruise continues out to Hagen island – the largest of more than 70 islands on Lake Argyle. Hagan Island is over 7 km long and is easily recognised by the landmark ‘Mount Misery’ towering over the now submerged site of the original Argyle Downs Homestead after which Lake Argyle is named.
