Hi, earlier this year took a 15000 km trip around half of Australia (WA/South Australia/Northern Territory). The Purnululu NP was one of the highlights - also known as the Bungle Bungles. The sandstone rock formations were deposited about 350 million years ago, and although the area has been known by the local traditional owners for ~20000 years, the area was only "discovered" by tourists in the early 80's. It was declared a National Park in 1987 - and World Heritage listed in 2003.
Thank for looking in - C&C always welcome.
Cheers - Richard.
Vey nice work, Richard. I like each shot but I favor the last one because it's more encompassing. Interesting territory.
That looks like a very interesting place to visit!
The photos are wonderful; the last one is my favorite.

Wow. Beautiful pics and look at those layers! I had never heard of that place before you posted these. Reminds me of a cross between The Badlands and Painted Hills here in the States.

Hi Tom, yes, the green of the Acacia trees and the Spinifex makes it a more complete shot. Thanks for looking in and commenting. Cheers, Richard.
Hi, It would be good to be there at the moment, the remnants of a cyclone has just gone through that area and has dropped a fair amount of rain so the creeks would be flowing - which unfortunately would make it difficult to get to as there are about 15 creek crossings to navigate. Thanks for looking in and commenting. Cheers, Richard.
Hi, would certainly like to go back there again, it's just a pity it is a 3000km drive from home ! Thanks for looking in and commenting. Cheers, Richard.
