A Photo Trip to the Bungle Bungles

In the Kimberley region of Western Australia sits Purnululu National Park, a protected area of nearly 600,000 acres established as a park in 1987. Purnululu is home to the Bungle Bungle Range, featuring spectacular “beehive dome” karst sandstone formations—some rising more than 600 feet above the surrounding plains.
