Location of Purnululu National Park

The Bungle Bungle massif is located approximately 200kms south of Kununurra and 60km north-east of Halls Creek by air. The Range reaches 25 kilometres from north to south, 30 kilometres east to west and towers up to 600m above sea level – 250 metres above the surrounding North-West plains.

Road access

Access to the Park by road is via Spring Creek Track, from the Great Northern Highway approximately 250km south of Kununurra, to the track’s end at the Purnululu National Park Visitor Centre. The track is 53 km long and is usable only in the dry season (about April 1 to December 31), and only by 4WD high clearance vehicles and off road trailers. Safely navigating it takes approximately three hours.

The park is open between April and December (weather permitting).

Check with the Kununurra office of the Department of Parks and Wildlife for the current weather forecast and road conditions before entering the park. From within Australia call 08 9168 4200.

Climate

Average daily maximum temperatures in the dry season (April to September) range from 29 degrees (Celsius) in July to 38 degrees in September with little rain and low humidity. Overnight, temperatures decrease to become considerably cool by early morning and sunrise. Average daily maximum temperature during the wet season (October to March) is 40 degrees with significant humidity. Most of the 500-700mm annual rainfall occurs between December and March resulting in unsealed roads becoming impassable and Park closure.
