BBEKT2 - Bungle Bungle Helicopter/4WD/Walk Stay One Night
What a way to experience the Bungle Bungle! Join your helicopter flight with HeliSpirit from Warmun, situated halfway between Kununurra and Halls Creek on the Great Northern Highway but just minutes away from the World Heritage Listed Purnululu National Park. As we fly over the Bungle Bungle by helicopter, you will see endless beehive shapes of rock formations, deep crevasses and gorges with palm trees clinging to the sides. The helicopter flight takes in the red rock gorges of the northern massif, the western wall, Piccaninny Gorge and Creek, Deep Gorge and Y Gorge. Once landed, transfer to our comfortable 4WD for a tour of the spectacular Beehive Domes and walk into Cathedral Gorge.
At the end of your Bungle Bungle Helicopter/4WD/Walk Day Tour, stay overnight within Purnululu National Park
