Walking along the Piccaninny Trail is one of the most fantastic walk to be done in Purnunululu. In June, the temperature was ideal and there was no-one on the trail.
The 239,723 ha Purnululu National Park is a UNESCO World Heritage Centre. It is located in the Bungle Bungle Range composed of Devonian-age quartz sandstone which have been eroded over a period of 20 million years into a series of beehive-shaped towers or cones which make the landscape unique.
In the rainy season (November to March-April), the creek is a raging river, very deep and powerful. In the dry season, there are in places some stagnant ponds. Sometimes you can manage to walk along the water but at other times you need to find your own way among the spinifex grass which scratches your bare legs.
