7- Purnululu Bushwalking Yoga Tour
Do you love Yoga? Do you want to discover Purnululu? Are you a bushwalker or you would love to try? Do you want to enjoy yoga sessions in a pristine and dramatic natural environment?
Join Carole Baillargeon from Darwin Yoga Space on a ten day yoga adventure! We will practice yoga at sunrise and at sunset in the Piccaninny gorge in a world out of the time.
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.
PURNULULU NATIONAL PARK
9 day Yoga Tour
Duration: 9 days
The expedition starts 7:30am on the date nominated. We will travel 4 hours by 4WD to commence our exploration deep into the Purnululu National Park.
We can expect to encounter day trippers on the first day of the expedition but as we walk out of Cathedral Cave, we leave the crowds behind and enter a world only a few will see. For the next 9 days we will explore the five fingers.
We will be walking approximated 6 to 10 km per day. I plan to leave camp at 8am each morning. Our day will start early to avoid walking in the heat of the day. We will return to camp around 4pm.
The weather in the area can varies greatly. We can expect the day time temperatures to climb beyond 30° C whereas during the evening the temperature can be very cold.

PURNULULU NATIONAL PARK

Beyond the majestic tranquillity of Black Rock Pool
In the heart of Purnululu National Park, in a world forgotten by tourists, carved out by almost 400 million 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 that form these gorges shrink, leaving the walker with only the space necessary for his progress. The light is dimmed, the orange red of the rock colors the daylight a light pink. The air is cooling. We evolve in a world of unreal dimensions.
The first gorge, Finger 1, is a series of increasingly long pools, wedged between sandstone walls smoothed by the summer rains.
We enter the second gorge through a tunnel. It's a pleasant stroll along natural corridors that end in pools.
The third gorge is full of surprises, a source of clear water that is discovered on purple rocks, a well that seems bottomless
And a cave that leads somewhere!
You have to invent your way between large blocks of sandstone to reach the well and the long, somewhat mysterious tunnel of the fourth gorge.
During my first visit, it is the Finger 5 that I preferred for its charm which is discovered as an offering.
We will camp for 4 days in the Piccaninny Gorge, near a small body of water. I will take care of the dinner while you can enjoy the swimming pools located near the camp.
For those who are tempted, it is possible at the end of our hike to get on a helicopter to see from above what we will have discovered from below.
