Day 1 Halls Creek to Purnululu National Park
We meet you in the gold rush town of Halls Creek around 11am – pick up from the Halls Creek Visitor Centre. After a quick visit to see the remarkable China Wall, we travel off road and into the heart of Purnululu National Park, home of the magnificent Bungle Bungles. On arrival in Purnululu, there is time to orient ourselves and settle into our remote Bungle Bungles Safari Camp. After a delightful bush sunset, relax with a delicious meal and evening under the stars. (D)
Day 2 Purnululu National Park: Bungle Bungles
Spend the day exploring the highlights of this extraordinary National Park, the most famous of which are the Bungle Bungle domes. Rivers created this landscape of unique orange and black striped ‘beehive’ geological formations over a period of 20 million years. Unbelievably, only the locals knew it existed until the early 1980’s. To protect its unique landscape, the area was made a national park in 1987 and now enjoys World Heritage status. We explore the 2km long Echidna Chasm, known for its towering Livistonia Palm trees, and take a short walk (2-3km) into stunning Cathedral Gorge, where towering rocks create a natural amphitheatre.

Day 3 Return to Halls Creek
We bid farewell to Purnululu, take the rocky track back to the highway, and return to the Halls Creek Visitor Centre, arriving at approximately 10.30am. (B)

We operate our 4WD Kimberley Expeditions in custom-built, 21 seat 4WD trucks with a PA system and built-in storage (no risky trailers!). These comfortable, strong remote area vehicles allow our small groups extra space (including standing room), are fully air-conditioned and fitted with adjustable air-vents, reclinable seats, map pockets and footrests. It is important that when booking a 4WD outback adventure in the Kimberley, you understand that the roads we travel on can be heavily corrugated. Rest assured, these are the conditions for which our 4WD trucks are designed.
What to Bring
It is essential that you bring a torch, a broad-brimmed hat with sun visor for all round protection, sunscreen, a towel, good walking/trekking shoes and a personal water bottle.
You will need to bring a sleeping bag – 10ºC sleeping bags are available for sale at $50pp – these must be requested with our office prior to travel and can be kept following your trip or donated to local indigenous communities.
Other recommendations include: warm clothes for the evening (particularly if travelling May-Aug), personal toiletries and first aid, with any personal medication required.
- Departures are subject to weather conditions and road closures: usually only a concern for tours in April/October.
- This adventure is essentially days 2 to 4 of our weekly 5 Day Broome to the Bungle Bungles tour. So you will be joining a group who are part of a longer itinerary.
- It is important that you appreciate the Kimberley Wild experience and the remote, vast nature of the areas through which we travel – please ensure you read our What You Need to Know and Frequently Asked Questions pages.
- Travel Insurance is compulsory for all travellers on all tours and details must be presented to tour guide before departure.
- Are you over 70 years old? Due to the remote location and challenging nature of our extended camping tours it is essential for older travellers to review and sign our Medical Form to ensure you can participate fully in the itinerary.
