Halls Creek and Bungle Bungles / Purnululu

Out of the desert and into the Kimberley region where we look forward to less dust and more fishing and swimming. We’ll be catching barramundi soon enough.

The Tanami Track finishes just south of Halls Creek where some friends of ours live. We stayed with them for several days. It gave us a nice base to explore the area and service the hilux, which ticked over 160,000km on our way up the Tanami. We visited a few of the local attractions like China Wall, Palm Springs, Old Halls Creek and the Kimberley Hotel.

From Halls Creek we headed up to the Bungle Bungles for a few days. The track in is rough, slow and hard on vehicles. I think it took us something like 5 hours to travel the 60 odd km to the camp grounds. Our favourite attraction is echidna chasm. The sun coming through the narrow chasm looks impressive and the walk is fun. Cathedral Gorge and all the other spots are pretty good too.

Back on the highway heading north, we stopped off at Warmun to look at the famous aboriginal art gallery. I started feeling dizzy when I saw the prices so I left Sharni in there and went for a walk to take some photos of white cockatoos hanging out in boab trees.
