Purnululu was only known to Aboriginals People and a few adventurers. Listed as a World Heritage Site since 2003, Purnululu still remains a mythical and very isolated world of breathtaking natural beauty.
Purnululu National Park is a mythical and very isolated world of breathtaking natural beauty. Beyond Cathedral Gorge, beyond the famous domes and beyond Piccaninny gorge, in the heart of the park, in a world forgotten by tourists, carved by almost 400 millions years of erosion, snuggled up in lost times, 5 small gorges are hidden: “The 5 Fingers”.
The "5 Fingers" are therefore 5 small gorges, all 5 different from each other. Sometimes 200 meters high, the cliffs shrink, leaving the walker with only the space necessary for his progress. The light is dimmed, the orange red of the rock collars the daylight a light pink. The air is cooling. We evolve in a world of unreal dimensions.
