Start your day of adventuring with a thrilling scenic flight from Kununurra, which offers views of the Ord River, Lake Argyle, Lissadell Station, Texas Downs Station, the Osmand Ranges, and a spectacular aerial circuit over the Bungle Bungle Range. We partner with Aviair, who operates Kununurra’s newest and only fully air-conditioned fleet of aircraft.
After disembarking, you will follow your guide on a walking tour of the spectacular beehive-shaped domes, and a walk into the mesmerising Cathedral Gorge. Whilst at Cathedral Gorge, you can enjoy a picnic lunch whilst surrounded by towering cliffs.
After a day of exploring, enjoy a refreshing dip in our pool or a drink at our Bungles Bar. Why not wander up to our sunset spot to watch the afternoon sun light up the rocky ranges or simply relax in the comfort of your private cabin.
A fresh, chef-prepared dinner is served around 6pm and can be eaten either inside the Lodge dining room, or under the stars in an alfresco dining area featuring an open outdoor fire pit. Don’t forget to look up and take in the sparkling night sky which offers uninterrupted views of the Milky Way Galaxy, Southern Cross and much more.
In the morning, enjoy a leisurely breakfast at the Lodge before beginning a second day of adventuring. Board the 4WD bus for the 65 minute journey to the northern end of Purnululu National Park, where you will follow your guide on fascinating walks into the extraordinary Echidna Chasm and Northern Gorges. It is hard to comprehend that the gorge walls of Echidna Chasm are up to 200 metres in height and barely a metre wide in places. Walking through the narrow passage of this breathtaking chasm, gives you the opportunity to look skywards and see the glowing, sunlight filter down through the crevices of the gorge. A picnic lunch is provided again on this second day.
Your trip ends with a return scenic flight to Kununurra, where you can view the immense Argyle Diamond Mine, Ragged Ranges and Carr Boyd Ranges.
