Meet your local tour guide at the HeliSpirit shady area at Bellburn airstrip in Purnululu national park. 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. Walk amongst the famous eroded towers and black and orange banded beehive structures on the Domes Walk. Your guide will 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 backpack with your lunch is provided per couple, or per person if you are a solo traveller.

The northern gorges of Purnululu are quite different to Cathedral Gorge and the Domes at the south.

A 65 minute drive takes us northwards along the Western Wall of the Bungle Bungle Range. We leave the sandstone striped domes behind us to view conglomerate structure with deep cutting rifts. A rocky path leads your walk 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.

Includes morning tea, lunch, cold water, chilled refresher towels.
