Description

 

Turkey Creek lies almost half way between Halls Creek and Kununurra. It doesn’t offer a whole lot to the casual traveller but it is the closest settlement to the Bungle Bungle park entrance and there is a small swimming pool at the roadhouse/caravan park.

Sites in the caravan park are limited but surprisingly it is much more attractive than the one in Halls Creek.

Helicopter flights are available from here and this is the best way to take photographs from the air. In 1999 the flight cost $170 a head with a minimum of 2 people per flight.

REVIEW

 

Helicopter flight over the Bungles

 

These flights are expensive ($170 a head with a minimum of two passengers - max 3) but since we didn't want to drive in to see the area it was our only alternative.

We had never flown in a helicopter before and it was quite an exciting experience, at least it was for me, Belle got air sick.

The flight is VERY expensive and you only get to spend about 5 minutes flying over the bit you really want to see - the bee hive domes.

If we come back this way we will make the effort to hire a 4wd and drive in.
