Bungle Bungles

Hello everyone,

Quick question, I know in the bungle bungles that caravans are not allowed but campers are.
Now for the question, Is a Kimberley Karavan allowed? It is smaller than a caravan etc so I was curious.

Your comments or experiences are appreciated.

We went last year with a camper trailer and it was a fairly rough track going in , narrow in places and several water crossings. Took almost 2hrs to do the 50+ km into the park, thats why they don't allow caravans. I don't think you would have a problen with a Kimberly as I think they wouldn't be much bigger than a camper trailer and its also designed for off road use. A call to the Park info office would soon let you know. Hope you can as its such a magical place.
Cheers Dave

You did well to do it in 2 hours.... I thought it was around 43km off the highway to the entrance - took me around 3 hours and I wasn't going lightly

Enquire with DEC first, as it is quite a long drive to do if you are sent out again. They allow camper trailers and not caravans it seems on name alone. Some camper trailers that go in are as big on the track as small caravans that aren't permitted.

Hi Motherhen, just looking at your signature and pic, am a bit jealous as we aren't going anywhere this year except a trip to Shark Bay in September, we have a very sick cat and an over exuberant puppy so our wings have been clipped for a while.

Enjoy your trip away.

Cheers

Thanks Deanna

We are lucky we have a daughter who runs the farm when we go away, and our dog loves her, as do all the sheep.

I have personally taken a Kimberley Karavan into the Bungle Bungle. Also, I am aware of quite a few others that have taken theirs in too.
You need to join up with theKimberley Karavan Owners site along with a large number of others. If you have difficulty send me an email and I will guide you.

Hi Hooroo,
The Bungle Bungles are an absolute must if you can do it. Plan on staying overnight in the Park as well. The only trouble is the steep angle into and out of 2 of the creeks. If other Kimberlay Karavans have done it, it should be good. Checking with others is a great plan. Have fun, Jan
Couldn't ask for any better!

It would not be a physical problem getting a KK in Jan, just need to follow their rules re what they consider a caravan or a camper.

As of the first of May 2009 all 'off road' caravans, campers, camper trailers etc are allowed into the Bungles as long as they have a single axel and are being towed by a 4x4. The requirement is OFF ROAD and the wheels/tyres of course have to be 4x4 type wheels and tyres.
