Piccaninny Gorge can be accessed from Piccaninny car park on the south side of the very famous Bungle Bungle Range.
Located in the Purnululu National Park a few hours south on Kununurra in Western Australia, the Bungle Bungles are a must see while visiting the top end.
These orange and black striped beehive domes are not seen anywhere else in the surrounding area and are very unique and beautiful. Make sure you get here for sunrise or sunset, as the colour of the landscape changes every minute.
A truly magical place, and I am privileged to have been able visit the spot. A dedicated photography trip is now on the cards so I can really explore the area and capture it.

A must on any trip through the Kimberley is a visit Purnululu National Park, home of the Bungle Bungles. A world renowned sandstone rock formation that is visited by thousands of people every year.
Purnululu is famous for the sandstone domes, unusual and visually striking with their striping in alternating orange and grey bands. The banding of the domes is due to differences in clay content and porosity of the sandstone layers: the orange bands consist of oxidised iron compounds in layers that dry out too quickly for cyanobacteria to multiply; the grey bands are composed of cyanobacteria growing on the surface of layers of sandstone where moisture accumulates.
