East Kimberly: The Bungle Bungle

The unique world heritage protected Bungle Bungle in the Purnululu National Park was one of the most inaccessible places we have visited so far. While only 53kms off the highway, the high-clearance 4WD dirt track took us about 2 and a half hours as we negotiated small creeks, undulating hills and corrugations. The spectacular scenery we found was well worth the effort!

Even if we did have a few bungles of our own… It all started well when we found a town close by to leave our trailer overnight (50kms is close by in this part of the country!). However, we also unfortunately left behind our gas bottle, which powers our fridge when we are not driving. There went the contents of the fridge for the second time in 2 weeks! And then, what we knew was pretty much inevitable at some point during our trip, our first flat tyre. Boaz came to the rescue in the rain!

Of course we didn’t let those mishaps take us down and enjoyed walks through the spectacularly deep chasms, into gorges and around the unique orange and black striped domed rock formations.

When saying goodbye, a friend left me with the following words of advice... "postcards dont go out of fashion". Share our adventures from the road on our fantastical year-long adventure.

    Good morning Boazi and Deb,
    Last night aba and I read your latest blog with full enjoyment both of the style of writing and of your wonderful adventures, including the little hiccoughs which from the readers’ end are humorous, though not at your end. We looked once more at all the amazing photos sent since the beginning of your trip and did lots of oohing and ahing. You both look beautiful, the places you have visited thrilling in their majesty.
    Keep enjoying each other, your journey and the magnificent landscapes of this incredible country.
    Love,
    Ima/Ann and aba/Yehuda xoxo
