Opening of Kimberley’s World Heritage Purnululu National Park delayed by ‘boggy’ road to Bungle Bungles
Tourists hoping to visit one of the East Kimberley’s most popular attractions will have to wait longer than expected, after the Department of Biodiversity, Conservation and Attractions announced it had been forced to delay the reopening of Purnululu National Park.
The Bungle Bungles, located 150km north of Halls Creek, were set to reopen on April 9 but remain inaccessible by road, as contractors work to fix damage to the unsealed Spring Creek Track caused by wet season rain.
The World Heritage Site open date is now flagged for April 19, pending weather conditions.
The Department of Biodiversity, Conservation and Attractions announced the delay on Wednesday, advising repair works had been hindered by “boggy conditions”.
Bookings for Purnululu’s two camp grounds are available from May 1, with any April availability open once roads are repaired.
