- Onto The Bungle Bungles -

(A beautiful photo halfway through the cave in Tunnel creek.)

(L-R:Graeme, Me and Tim. Wading through water in tunnel Creek.)

Leaving Windjana Gorge saw us exploring nearby Tunnel Creek which runs 1km through a sandstone cave system... You have to wade through water in some parts which was quite refreshing in the increasing heat of the day.

Bats were plentiful and the formations in the cave were beautiful. Traveling on we passed through Fitzroy Crossing and Halls Creek to eventually begun the rugged 53km drive into the Bungle Bungles.

The Bungle Bungles are truly unique. Giant beehive domes layered in colour surrounded us as we walked in to check out the mighty Cathedral Gorge. Its like nature’s amphitheatre with towering domes and vibrant colours. We camped over night and explored Echidna Chasm and the Mini Palms walk. The play of light on the rock was different at every turn it was truly amazing!

(The "beehive" formations of the Bungle Bungles...Truly awesome!)
