Information

Piccaninny Creek carpark is the starting point for 3 great walks within Purnululu National Park.

Domes Trail: A short circuit trail of 1km that winds around a cluster of beehive formations. Easy walking, allow 30minutes.

Cathedral Gorge: Take the left branch off the Piccaninny Gorge trail as signed for an easy - moderate walk of 3km return. Allow 2 hours. This walk is one of the major highlights of a visit to the Bungle Bungles taking in a walk along open bedrock of the Piccaninny Creek and then spectacular walking and scrambling over rocks as you enter a cavern with a natural amphitheatre and water hole with white sand.

Piccaninny Gorge: An extensive walk of 30km return (2-3 days) or a 14km return walk part-way to "The Elbow". Piccaninny Gorge is the largest gorge in Purnululu National park. Sheer side cliffs, and numerous waterholes and lush vegetation make this a spectacular walk for the experienced, fit and well prepared hiker. Carry in own camping gear, water and food for this overnight hike and advise Park Rangers of your intentions.
