As you can see we have come a long way and we are already in W.A. Right now we are in the Bungle Bungles, also known as Purnululu.
On our first day we did a walk that leads to Echidna Chasm, but sadly there were no Echidnas. It was great. There were high walls where you could make fantastic echoes.
The next day we did a 3km walk around the Domes and to Cathedral Gorge, but it wasn’t a church, it was a lovely pond-like pool of water with great, high walls and recalcitrant TEENAGE GERMANS who kept on throwing stones into the pool.
That afternoon we took a helicopter ride. Our friendly pilot was called Bryn. Our helicopter was blue with no doors in the back and the rotor was so fast that you couldn’t even see it. When we took off, it felt like we were being lifted up by a massive dinosaur. Sometimes when we wanted to see things, Bryn turned the helicopter on an angle so we were diagonal and could look down better.
We had headsets that you could speak into by pressing a button or pedal. I had to press a pedal because I was in the front seat with the pilot. The Bungles Bungles just looked like a whole bunch of squiggly rocks with amazing gorges in between. It was lovely.
Tune in next time,
