Willis's Walkabouts Rather Older Picture Galleries

These are a selection of rather older galleries that have not yet been updated, but why miss out on them completely just because they are not quite as shiny as the new ones?

Piccaninny Gorge

The next three photos show one of our base camps, walking above the camp and an optional swim in one of the side gorges.

Piccaninny East

One of the advantages of camping and walking in relatively open areas like these are the sunrise and sunset views you do not get at the bottom of a gorge. Another is the wealth of wildflowers.

There is far more to see than these few photos can show. Why not join us and experience the best that the Bungle Bungles have to offer.

Go to our Wet Season Bungles Gallery.

Go to the description of Bungle Bungles and Osmond Range walk.

Purnululu was listed as a world heritage site in July 2003. The following quote is from the Australian Department of Environment and Heritage website.

"Famous for the 45 000 hectare Bungle Bungle Range, with its huge expanse of striking banded beehive structures, sandstone cliffs and towers, Purnululu has been listed as an outstanding landscape that is a superlative natural phenomenon, revealing the history of its formation over hundreds of millions of years. Purnululu National Park has such outstanding universal natural values that it enriches the world and should be conserved for the benefit of all people. Before 1982, when aerial pictures were first released, it was virtually unknown except to pastoralists, scientists and the local Aboriginal community. It is now seen as one of the scenic jewels of outback Australia."

See the UNESCO Description of the World Heritage listing.

If you would like more information about the Bungles, here is a 72 page PDF of the Australian government application for World Heritage status for Purnululu. The document contains a wealth of information (much more information than in the actual listing) as well as some beautiful photos. It's over 2MB, so you'll need a lot of patience if you don't have a fast internet connection.
