Did you know?
The Bungle Bungle Range was only known to local Aboriginal owners and pastoralists until a documentary team brought it to the world's attention in 1983.
Echidna Chasm is one of the highlights of the park with easy to moderate, 2 km (1 to 2 hour return walk) through a narrow chasm with some large boulders to be scrambled over (the end of the walk can be challenging for some). The walk begins at the Echidna Chasm car park, 19 km north of the Purnululu Visitor Centre. Echidna Gorge car park has shaded picnic areas and toilets.
Cathedral Gorge in Purnululu National Park is a geological formation with incredible acoustics. The walk is about 2km each way. From Piccaninny carpark, the walk winds its way through the iconic bee-hives, heading down between two walls of rock before opening up into Cathedral Gorge.
This is a Class 3 walk tail; allow approximately 1-2 hours to complete this walk (source: Australia's North West).
We suggest booking with a First Nations tour guide to learn more about this cultural importance of this amazing location by foot, and you may like to also consider taking an aerial flight over the Bungle Bungles to see the beauty from the air! There are some fantastic short flights over the Bungle Bungles as well as extended flights of the region.
