Reviews of Bungle Bungle Ranges

Discovered by a film crew in 1983, the Purnululu National Park, in the north of western Australia, is famous for its dome-shaped, fossilised sand formations and mineral rich landscape. 

My suggestion:
The best time to go is during the dry season (April to September), but make sure that the road is open in advance. An aerial tour is the best, albeit expensive, way to see Bungle Bungle.
My review

I particularly liked, during my holiday in Australia, the unusual landscape of Bungle Bungle, which is similar to Kings Canyon in the Northern Territory. These immense dome-shaped, orange, stratified rocks look like beehives - a geology and desert fan's dream! We got there by four-wheel drive, which wasn't the simplest option. The road that leads off the national highway isn't long, but it's really bumpy. This is real desert land.

The nearest town is Kunanurra, a departure point for aerial tours. A once in a lifetime moment to appreciate the enormity of this hostile, desert region.
