The Beehives in Purnululu

By Linda Tancs

One of the best-loved attractions in Western Australia’s Kimberley region is the Bungle Bungle Range (also known as the Bungle Bungles). Often likened to giant beehives, the range comprises a landscape of orange and black striped karst sandstone domes rising 820 feet above the surrounding semi-arid savanna grasslands. Amazingly, these prehistoric formations were known only to local Aboriginals until a documentary film crew discovered the site in 1983. Touted the most outstanding example of cone karst in sandstone anywhere in the world, it’s an iconic feature of Purnululu National Park.
