Beehive Domes in Purnululu National Park, Western Australia
Most visitors to Australia stick to the east coast of the country. While there are many great things to see in the east, I think some of the best attractions are actually in Western Australia.

The Bungle Bungle mountains in Purnululu National Park is a park that doesn’t get a lot of visitors. It is very remote, requiring hours of driving from the nearest major city, which is Darwin in the Northern Territory. Once you get to Turkey Creek (which is nothing more than a gas station), it is another 4 hours, off-road to get to the park.

The reward is well worth the effort, however. It is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and a place even few Australians have visited. The most famous feature are the bee hive domes, which is actually a result of coloration on the surface of the rocks. There are also some very dramatic chasms in the park, which makes it a real treat for photographers.

My name is Gary Arndt.
In March 2007 I sold my house and have been traveling around the world ever since. Since I started traveling, I have probably done and seen more than I have in the rest of my life combined.

So far I have visited all 7 continents, over 175 countries and territories around the world, all 50 states and every US territory, every Canadian province, every Australian state and territory, over 125 US National Park Service sites and over 295 UNESCO World Heritage Sites.
