Mini Palms, Purnululu NP
About the Trail
Taking the 2.65km one way trail into Mini Palms Gorge is one of the best ways of experiencing the sheer scale of the Bungle Bungle escarpment. The first bit of the trail is hot going following a stony creek bed.
For added adventure the path takes you scrambling around and over huge fallen boulders. These boulders are made up of a conglomerate of smaller rocks cemented together by hardened mud of millennia. Ever present are towering gorge walls glowing red and tall elegant Livistonia palms.
This trail is a constant feast of scenic and geological highlights. The trail ends at a high point overlooking an amphitheatre enclosed by majestic walls of rock. The viewing platform is as far as you go, as walking along the gorge floor is off limits to the public. Trampling feet can damage tiny palms that somehow survive floods that pound through here in the wet season.
