Bungle Bungle Flight + Cathedral Gorge, Domes & Echidna Chasm Guided Walk + Overnight Stay
A mesmerising scenic flight will take you on an unforgettable adventure from Kununurra over Lake Argyle, Ord River Irrigation Area, Carr Boyd and Osmand Ranges, the Ord and Bow Rivers, and the Bungle Bungle Range. Your aeroplane will make a landing at a remote and unsealed airstrip in Purnululu National Park, where you will be met by your tour guide.
From here, you will be driven in an air conditioned 4WD bus toward the Bungle Bungle Range. Your guide will lead you on a moderate, 3km walk throughout the famous eroded towers and beehive shaped domes on the domes walk. You will then head into Cathedral Gorge, where towering cliffs open to form a space with awe inspiring natural acoustics. Walk along the rocky bed of Piccaninny Creek, which only flows in the monsoon waterfall season. A tasty picnic lunch will be provided to keep you fuelled whilst exploring the park.
Once you have returned to the bus, a 45-60 minute drive will take you to the northern end of Purnululu National Park, where you will venture along the rocky path leading into Echidna Chasm. This path is nestled between towering cliffs, and at points narrows to just 1.5 metres in width. Admire the fascinating Livistona Palm trees which cling to the vertical walls bordering the chasm entrance. There may also be an opportunity to visit neighbouring trails at the northern end of the park. This 1.5 hour walk can be challenging at points, and so it is best suited to those with full mobility.
As the day comes to an end, head back to the Bungle Bungle Savannah Lodge where you can enjoy your own private ensuite cabin, as well as a three course buffet dinner and cooked breakfast. The next morning, your return flight will take you back to Kununurra, and will pass over the immense Argyle Diamond Mine, once famous for its mining of rare pink diamonds.
