This is why we recommend exploring Purnululu with a local:


Purnululu National Park is huge, and especially if you have a limited time within the Park, it can be difficult to see everything on your wish list. Your local guide will make sure that you don’t miss out on any amazing sites, and will point out finer details along the way that you may have missed if you were exploring alone. Some of the tours require a short drive to the beginning of the track, but your guide will drive you to the best place to start your adventure.


Exploring the Bungle Bungle with a local means that not only will you witness the amazing sites of the Park, but any questions that may pop up along the way can be answered. Bungle Bungle Guided Tours local guides are highly knowledgeable about the nature within the Park, as well as both the modern and ancient history of the Park.


As is the case with any tourist destination, there are highly popular areas, and then also the lesser known, more exclusive areas which can be just as exciting as the famous sites. Your guide knows all about these areas, and is able to take you straight to these sites that you may have never discovered if venturing through the Park without a local by your side. For example, the Heli-Hike tour actually sees you and your local guide creating your own path through the Park, meaning that you will be venturing through largely untouched areas of country.
