A last view of the beehives.

The “Domes Trail” is a slight detour either on the way to Cathedral Gorge or on the way back. It is worth the small effort as the trail is about 300m long and takes you near those amazing domes.

The domes are about 200 to 300 m high. The sandstone and conglomerates have been eroded into these shapes for over 20 million years.

“Over the span of 350 million years, rivers washed sand and pebbles into the area, layer-upon-layer, and the sand was ground finer and harder together until it formed sandstone rock. Strong winds and heavy rains have eroded the sandstone away to form the dome shapes we see today.

The Bungle Bungle gain their tiger-stripes from black algae growth that permeates the more porous layers of the rock, and a glossy orange build up of manganese and iron staining.

Standing within these domes, you cant even begin to fathom the time it has taken for this process to occur.” (http://www.discoverwest.com.au/western_australia/bungle_bungles.html)

An amazing sight, Jean-Noel, and thank you for the explanation of these strange 'domes' of sandstone. Carol
