About Demboong Banan Trail, Kununurra, Mirima NP
The name of this trail comes from the local Indigenous Miriuwung people. Demboong means Gap and Banan means Trail. This short well-marked trail goes through a small gap between eroded sandstone ranges to a lookout over Kununurra.
Birds are prolific throughout Mirima, especially early morning, which is also a good time to walk to beat the heat. In the valley where the trail begins you may be lucky enough to see families of colourful variegated fairy-wrens flittering in and out of acacia trees and turkey bush. As you climb, you will see and hear rock pigeons.
Despite its short nature, care should be taken as the trail is broken up with rock and uneven surfaces.
