1. There’s so much to see on the way
With a glowing array of ridges, rocky outcrops, and bodies of water, the journey to the Bungle Bungle from Kununurra is one well worth it. Within minutes of taking off from Kununurra Airport, you’ll see the gorgeous Ord River and Kununurra Diversion Dam, as well as panoramic views of the town’s key agriculture hub – the Ord Irrigation Scheme. Noteworthy locations en route to Purnululu include Lake Argyle, the Carr Boyd Ranges, Osmand Ranges, Argyle Diamond Mine and many of the Kimberley’s snaking rivers. You’ll fly over these before you even see the beehive-like mounds and Purnululu’s hidden world of gorges and pools.
