The Bungle Bungles

As my holiday starts to wind down I thought you might like some pics.

I have run up against the five picture limit but you can read about the whole day and see more pics here:

I doubt you have seen anything like it.

A Qantas ad was filmed in Piccaninny Creek



Did you catch the creek

Re: The Bungle Bungles

The interesting thing about the colour on those hills is that it is about as thick as your fingernail. Less than a fraction of a mm below the surface it is very blonde coloured sandstone.

The red is oxidised iron (rust or iron ore) the dark colour is Algae in the rock. if it were not for these two reactions the rock would erode much quicker.

The Bungle Bungles have only really been widely known about since the 1980s prior to that only a few cattlemen knew of their existence.

The road to them is still a very rough dirt track suitable only for four wheel drives.
