Boabs in the Bungles

$45.00$75.00 $22.50 - $37.50

Boab trees with giant nuts and the colourful Bungle Bungle (Purnalulu) National Park in the Kimberley’s. This is a place of its kind with beehive shape domes layered with colours, a geological landmark unlike anywhere in the world. A special place to visit, camp, walk and explore the unique formations that rises hundreds of metres above the grass plains. Privilege to paint such an old heritage listed site.

The boab trees are special they have bulbous shaped trunks and branches that fan out reaching to the sky somewhat like roots that’s why it is sometimes referred to as the upside-down tree. It is found in the remote region of the Kimberley’s which is a diverse and changing region. It is also found in Western Victoria region of the northern territory. The indigenous folk call it Larrkardiy and is a source of water. These trees are special they seem to have a spirit all their own and are fascinating and magical. There are six different species in the world this is one of them. In the background is the Bungle Bungles a mass of beehive shaped towers called (karst) with some elevations as high as (1896ft) above sea level. It is one of the most impressive examples of karst sandstone towers in the world.  They date from around 350 million years more and less a million or two and is part of an ancient sedimentary river bed. The layers of sandstone lifted to create mountain ranges comprised of layers of different colours some dark which has a higher clay content and a bacterium, and the lighter colour is less clay. The orange colour is created by iron oxidation. The surface is extremely fragile easily eroded by rain and weather, but it is stabilized by crusts of iron oxide and bacteria. The Bungle Bungles are surrounded by semi savannah grasslands and The Bungle Bungles are on the UNESCO World Heritage List. It is a wonderous place to see where whole caves are created by whirlpools of water from the rains. Where ancient hand prints of the past are painted on walls so high you wonder how they ever got there.
