The 53 km drive into the national park from the Great Northern Highway is via a rugged track that is only accessible to 4WD vehicles. On arrival at the visitor centre, pay your national park fee and proceed to turn right towards Cathedral Gorge and follow the ‘Private Camp’ signs within the park.
Approximately 11kms from the visitor centre make a right hand turn to Bungle Bungle Savannah Lodge and travel a short 1km before arriving at your destination. Whilst it is a scenic drive, it takes 2- 3 hours one way and therefore it isn’t a quick day trip destination.
Please note that it take approximately 5 hours to reach Purnululu National Park from Kununurra. (Including highway and dirt road components of the drive).
The scenery in this region is simply spectacular from the air. There is so much more to see than you could imagine and a fly-in package is a great option.
Fly in packages are available with departures from 2 locations:
- Kununurra, flying in an air-conditioned fixed wing aircraft with Aviair (Gold winner of the WA Tourism Awards, Major Tour and Transport Operator)
- Warmun (Turkey Creek) community on the Great Northern Highway with HeliSpirit for helicopter flights (Silver winner of the WA Tourism Awards, Adventure Tourism)
- (You also have the opportunity to be transferred via helicopter with HeliSpirit from Kununurra)
Transfers to and from the lodge are included in these packages. See our packages for more details.
If flying to Purnululu in a private/chartered aircraft and landing at Bellburn Airstrip, we can arrange transfers to and from the lodge for you.
