Following our air trip over the Bungle Bungles, it was time to hike into this unusual formation of rocks for a couple of kilometres; initially to Cathedral Gorge which is a natural amphitheatre. It is a huge cavern with incredible acoustics. A couple of concerts have in fact been performed here. The variation in colouring and texturing of the walls in the gorge is stunning. Our final stop was a hike over rocky terrain to Piccaninny Creek Lookout.
Throughout our travels, our tour guide Calum, emphasized the cultural attachment of the various Aboriginal tribes to their land and to be respectful of their traditions.
A great day was topped off by comraderie with the 10 others in our group, enjoying drinks to view the sunset which unfortunately, was obscured by cloud cover.
The geological formation of the Bungle Bungles is truly a unique Australian landscape.
