The slideshow ‘tells the story’ of Purnululu National Park and the Bungle Bungle Range starting with a series of aerial views of this remarkable landscape. Flying over the range in a helicopter or light aircraft is definitely one of the best ways to appreciate this place. Back on terra firma, the slideshow continues with a series of photos showing the typical beehive-shaped karst sandstone cones which are visible as you approach the hills, and some of the narrow gorges, caverns, seasonal pools and isolated stands of tall palms that are found in the interior. The composition of the sandstone beds is illustrated and the slideshow finishes with some wider views of the broader landscape of Purnululu National Park, showing the spinifex grasslands and tropical savannas that provide the setting for the isolated Bungle Bungle Range.
