This UNESCO World Heritage National Park south of Kununurra protects a fascinating geological landmark, the magnificent Bungle Bungle range, a unique panorama of beehive-like mounds, dyed a vivid orange and black by metallic deposits.
One of the best ways to see them is from the air, giving a perspective of their massive scale.

Further into the range there is a hidden world of gorges and pools where fan palms cling precariously to the dome walls. The best sites are reached on foot at Cathedral Gorge in the south and Echidna Chasm in the north.
Aboriginal heritage runs deep and the area is rich in rock art and sacred burial grounds, while the plentiful birds, including rainbow bee-eaters and flocks of noisy budgerigars, are your constant companions.
