Purnululu National Park is located in the Kimberley, in Western Australia. Discovered by a film crew in 1983, it was designated a national park four years later and has since gained a reputation as one of the most wild and endearing landscapes in Australia. In 2003, It received a World Heritage listing.

A major component of this park is the Bungle Bungle Range, which is made up of distinctive beehive-shaped towers of sandstone, boulders, and pebbles cemented together. The sandstone domes are unusual and like nowhere else on Earth.
