Hello Everyone.

I'm heading over to the Bungle Bungle and I'm inquiring if anyone has done a helicopter ride on the last month ore so. If they have how much and can a person pay by card.

Thanks Ray.

Hi rayj4

We did the 2hrs plane ride out of Kununurra awesome flight Lake Argyle Bungles and kimberley mine on the 28 June we booked by phone from Timber Creek and paid be card would suggest all would be the same .Prices vary on the length of flights ours was on special at $315pp the chopper from the caravan park at the enterance to the Bungle Bungles was reasonable but short . If your coming through Katherine call at the tourist office thats we,re we got all the pamplets.

Hi Ray we did the helicopter flight a couple of months ago, Slingair do it from inside the park which is about 50klm from the highway & it was about $320 for a 18min flight. They also have a helicopter at the entrance to the park, where there is also a caravan park because wouldn't recommend taking a caravan in unless it was a full off road. It is well worth the money though and the only way to really appreciate it all.

Hi Rick.

Good to see that they credit cards, would be a bit red faced if i turned up with only a credit card and they took cash only.

Thanks Ray.

Ditto
Took the 13 seater 0615 flight.
Early morning = less turbulence and better visibility.
13 seater more comfortable, no headphones needed as has PA
0615 and back by 0800 means have the rest of the day to do other things
Also saw Lake Argyle on the way down and the Argyle diamond mine on the way back.
Then visited Purnululu NP on the ground later in the week.
Cheers
Andrew
