Bungle Bungle, Purnululu

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.
