Bungle Bungles

The Bungle Bungles Range and its distinctive beehive shaped domes is the major part of World Heritage Listed Purnululu National Park.

It was only 1983 when it was ‘discovered’ by a film team and very soon gained world wide attention.

The distinctive beehive towers are sedimentary sandstone and conglomerates formed 350 million years ago. The weathering effects of wind from the Tanami Desert to the south-east and rainfall over millions of years have shaped the domes.
