Scenic Flights, Full Day guided tours, overnight stay and Diamond Mine Tour
2 Full Day Tours and Overnight
This scenic flight takes you on an unforgettable adventure over the Bungle Bungle Range, Lake Argyle, the Argyle Diamond Mine and the Ord River Irrigation Area. You will also fly over the stunning Carr Boyd Ranges, Osmand Ranges, the Ord River and Bow River.
Once reaching Purnululu National Park, you will land at the remote and unsealed Bellburn Airstrip, where you will be met by a tour guide and an air-conditioned 4WD bus. From the airstrip, your guide will drive you further into the park, where you will then disembark and enjoy a guided walk throughout the famous eroded towers and black and orange banded beehive domes of the Bungle Bungle Range. The Domes Walk is of moderate intensity, and is about 3-kilometres in distance. From here, you will follow your guide on the walk into Cathedral Gorge, where towering cliffs open up to form a space with incredible natural acoustics. After a short rest, you will walk along the dry creek bed of Piccaninny Creek, before boarding the 4WD bus for a 65-minute drive to the northern end of the park. A tasty picnic lunch will be provided to keep you fueled whilst exploring the park. After lunch, you will follow your tour guide on a 1.5-hour return walk into the incredible Echidna Chasm. The rocky path which you follow on this walk weaves between towering cliff faces, and at times will narrow to a width of less than two metres. Gazing skywards to the bright blue sky, the orange towering walls look as if they are lit from within, and are scattered with Livistona palm trees clinging to the walls. You may also have the opportunity to visit other walks at the northern end of the park alongside your tour guide. This walk requires trekkers to climb over boulders and navigate stairs, so we recommend this tour to those with a high level of mobility. After this walk, you will be driven to Bungle Bungle Savannah Lodge, where you will stay the night.
Spend your night in an ensuited cabin, and enjoy the delicious three course buffet dinner and a full cooked breakfast, and take a relaxing swim in the lodge pool. The next morning after breakfast, you will return to Bellburn Airstrip for your flight to the Argyle Diamond Mine.
Your scenic flight to the mine will touch down at the mine airstrip, from which you will be taken on a fascinating 3.5 hour ground tour of the mine site, and experience life at the mine firsthand. During this tour you will stop for lunch at the staff village before continuing on alongside your guide. This tour features an exploration of the mine’s processing plant, as well as the processes and technology used in diamond production. You will also be able to see over $1 million worth of Argyle diamonds and jewellery up close in the display gallery, as well as purchase a souvenir or even a diamond of your very own in the mine gift shop. Once your tour draws to a close, you will board your Aviair scenic flight once again, and make your way back to Kununurra whilst flying over stunning scenery below.
