Challenging
One adventure per person
Hike the incredible Bungle Bungles in Purnululu National Park, Western Australia.

 

The Bungle Bungle Fitness Adventure takes us into an unbelievably spectacular landscape that very few people get to witness.

We do hope you will join us on this challenging off- track hike into the remote wilderness of northern Western Australia.

With our very own local, female, indigenous guide we discover the incredible Purnululu Range and its extensive bee hive shaped sandstone towers, vast creek beds and iconic “fingers.”

Making a base camp for our adventure, we take daily hikes with a day pack only  – exploring the individual gorges, also known as “the fingers” each day  and returning to camp late afternoon.

Our adventure starts in the township of Kununurra where we enjoy a first night Welcome Dinner before flying out early the next day to Purnululu National Park – possibly over such sights as Bow River (yes, the Jimmy Barnes song) and the Argyle Diamond mine.

On arrival at Purnululu, we enjoy a Welcome to Country and take the first steps into the gorge for our incredible adventure.

This adventure is for you if the idea of exploring and discovering this very remote region of Australia in a fully supported, fully guided, women’s group, without having to carry a full pack.

We’ve graded the adventure as challenging due to the nature of the terrain and remote locations. A high level of physical and mental fitness is required.

Late afternoon, we meet with our Professional Wilderness Guides and discuss our gear and equipment.

Day 2 – Tuesday 27th April 

Depart Kununurra, Purnululu National Park

We have a very early rise this morning for a transfer back to the airport.

The excitement will be high as we take a scenic flight into the World Heritage Listed Purnunulu National Park.

What an opportunity to view this remote wilderness location from the sky before we land and hike through what we see from above.

Arriving at the local Bellburn airstrip, we head out for our Welcome to Country and morning tea.

It’s a short drive to  Echidna Chasm where we leave our private transport and begin our hike to our private and exclusive Echidna Chasm camp.

Cathedral Gorge Black Rock Pool

Day 4-5

Explore the Bungle Bungle Range

While we don’t have a set track to follow, we do set out to visit each finger over the coming days.

We are free to choose our path and navigate our own way, under the guidance of our fully Qualified Wilderness Guides.

Carrying only our day packs, we are able to travel light and become true explorers – and there is so much to see hidden within the interior of the Bungle Bungles.

Each of the “fingers” holds something different with regard to beauty, adventure, landscape, flora and fauna.

Hidden caves, rainforests, sandbeds, tunnels and rock formations reveal themselves as we scramble over boulders, ledges, through creeks and grasses.

Being with our guide here will be truly extraordinary.

At the end of the day, we retrace our exploratory footsteps to base camp each night.

There’s plenty of time to explore the gorge and surrounding dome hills in the late afternoon before we settle into camp.

Tonight we enjoy another wilderness dinner, our last on the trail,  under a canopy of a million stars.

Here we will be met by another Wilderness Guide who will, tomorrow,  walk and sing us into our final day’s journey

Piccaninny Creek, Return to Kununurra

As we hike out of the Bungles, our transport awaits and we make our way back to Bellburn airstrip.

With a flight to remember – soaring over the vast wilderness we have spent the past few days immersed in, we look back with excitement and sadness.

It is almost over and can’t ever be repeated.

But we can share the priceless memories of an adventure of personal challenge, new friendships and new frontiers.

We farewell the Bungles in stunning style as we fly over Lake Argyle and the mighty Ord River.

On arrival in Kununurra we return to our hotel accommodation for a long hot shower, comfy bed and the luxuries of urban life.

Not long to rest though as we head out for our SUNSET CRUISE on Lake Argyle*, before returning for our Celebration Dinner.
