The Bungle Bungles are one of the wonders of outback Australia. Formed many years ago the sandstone massif has the appearance of gigantic bell shaped rock towers with horizontal banding produced by layers of black lichens and orange silica. The sandstone is so fine that it crumbles when touched. July 2005.
