[K1-B] Trek Bungle Bungles: Fly/4WD/Hike Day Tour
Pick ups and drop offs available at Emma Gorge, El Questro, Wyndham and Home Valley.
Don’t just fly over the Bungles come with us for an amazing day to explore the Beehive country of the Gidja and Jaru people, the custodians of Purnululu National Park with local guides.
Departing Kununurra at 0900am then fly south over Lake Kununurra, with your local guide over the Packsaddle Irrigation area and the upper Ord River, on to Lake Argyle. We track over some of our vast cattle stations and the Osmond ranges, hear the ancient stories of this country from the custodians of the country. Our descent and arrival at the Bungle Bungle Ranges showcases the spectacular dome structures of the eastern escarpment.
On landing at the remote Belburn air field, we are welcomed to country by the Kingfisher local guide, we board the airconditioned 4WD coach, there are spectacular photo opportunities en route, and bush tucker to stop and sample. We head off on an unhurried guided trek to Cathedral Gorge and The Lookout, arguably one of the best views of the Park. The walk is an easy one with only a moderate level of fitness and agility required. We carry a satellite phone, first aid kit, and water on the hike, all Kingfisher guides are trained in senior first aid. A gourmet lunch is served in full view of “the domes”, that is local produce with some bush tucker elements. At around 2:30pm we head back to the airfield with time to stop the bus for various photo opportunities. We arrive at the airstrip for an afternoon beverage of sparkling cold beer or wine or a cup of tea and a time for more of a yarn with your local guide as you sit under the gum trees at the Belburn airstrip.
The return flight to Kununurra show cases Picanniny Gorge and the western escarpment, before setting course for the Argyle Diamond Mine, your local guide will tell of the Jaliwang whose scale fell at the sacred site that is now Argyle Diamond mine. The western shoreline of Lake Argyle and the Carr Boyd Ranges lead us back to Kununurra by flying-over the Lower Ord, Ivanhoe Crossing and the Northern Irrigation Area. We arrive back in Kununurra at approximately 16:30, after an extraordinary experience, and you will fall asleep that night dreaming of the Bungles.
