Mount Bruce Karijini National Park

Mount Bruce | Punurrunha

Karijini National Park

Directions - Located on the south side of Karijini Dr, the access road is not signed but can easily be located from the western intersection of Banjima Dr and Karijini Dr. The gravel access track is to the east of the intersection by about 100m and will take you all the way to the car park. 

The Hike - The big one!!! I had been looking forward to climbing Mount Bruce quite a lot on this trip and driving past it everyday on the way into Karijini only added to the anticipation. With several stops on Banjima Drive over the past few days to capture the second tallest mountain in Western Australia from different angles and lighting conditions, today was finally the day we were going to climb up to the summit. With almost perfect astrophotography conditions the night before we had spent a few hours photographing the rising Milky Way from a couple of vantage points around Mount Bruce with the car park actually being one of the better locations even though Mount Bruce didn't appear as prominent as it could have been.
