Enjoy your guided walk amongst the famous eroded towers and black and orange banded beehive structures on the Domes Walk. Your guide will then take you into Cathedral Gorge, where the towering cliffs open up to form a space with awe-inspiring natural acoustics. Walk along the sandy bed of Piccaninny Creek, which flows only in the monsoon waterfall season. Learn about the Kimberley climate, the 6 seasons and unique flora and fauna so important to the traditional custodians of the land.

A small cooler bag with your lunch is provided per couple, or per person if you are a solo traveller. Please note there is a ladder to climb and sandy areas on the walk.

This guided tour can be accessed by plane or helicopter with spectacular aerial views of areas inaccessible on the ground. To fly to the Bungle Bungle is really the flight of a lifetime, with scenery so spectacular you won’t know which way to look first. Aeroplanes give a broad panoramic view of the landscape and helicopters give a thrilling close up view with excellent photographic opportunities. Flights departing Kununurra have viewing opportunities of the Ord Irrigation Area, Lake Argyle and decommissioned Argyle Diamond Mine. Departing Warmun views are of the Osmand Range and Purnululu Conservation area. From El Questro, you fly over the Durack Range, Elgee cliffs and Argyle Diamond Mine.

Meet your local tour guide at the HeliSpirit shaded picnic area at Bellburn Airstrip in Purnululu National Park and join your fellow travellers on this unique small group guided tour. First, your guide will drive you closer to the south-west corner of the Bungle Bungle range to the starting point of the walk. Walk amongst the famous eroded towers and black and orange banded beehive structures on the Domes Walk and learn about how their delicate formations came to be. Your guide will then take you into Cathedral Gorge, where the towering cliffs open up to form a space with awe-inspiring natural acoustics. Walk along the Sandy bed of Piccaninny Creek, which flows only in the monsoon waterfall season. Learn about the Kimberley climate, the 6 seasons and unique flora and fauna so important to the traditional custodians of the land.

After this walk, re-board the 4WD bus for the 65-minute drive northwards along the Western Wall of the Bungle Bungle Range. We leave the sandstone striped domes behind us to view the imposing conglomerate structures with deep cutting rifts. Disembark the bus and follow your guide along a rocky path that leads you into Echidna Chasm, which narrows until it is just two shoulders width apart. Gazing skywards to the bright blue sky, the orange towering walls look as if they are lit from within. Livistona palm trees cling to the vertical sides. A high level of mobility is required for this 1.5-hour walk as it includes walking up ladders to viewing platforms at the end of the chasm.

A small backpack with your lunch is provided per couple, or per person if you are a solo traveller.

A taste of the iconic Bungle Bungle dome-shaped structures. This walk is perfect for those who are unable to walk long distances or would simply prefer not to. Departing from Bellburn Airstrip, you will meet your guide and travel in air-conditioned comfort for approximately 20-30 minutes onboard a 4WD vehicle to Piccaninny carpark.

From here you will embark on an easy 1km walk along the sandy creek bed amongst the World Heritage-listed beehive-shaped domes. Your guide will provide insight on the flora, fauna and Indigenous heritage of the park, while also explaining the history of how these famous eroded towers, banded with the colours of orange and black have developed over thousands of years.

Afterwards, enjoy a lunch in the shaded picnic area looking out at the domes.

Once refreshed and refuelled, reboard the 4WD vehicle heading north to Kungkalanayi Lookout. This involves a small walk uphill where you’ll be rewarded with 360-degree views of the region, including the western escarpment of the Bungle Bungle Range. On the return journey, stop in at the Purnululu Visitor Centre which offers the chance to purchase a souvenir, before returning to Bellburn Airstrip where you will farewell your guide.
