NABSQNO 52K-439810-8070375. Beehive Arch is an abandoned natural arch eroded through sandstone. It is located east of Picanniny Creek Gorge in Purnululu National Park (also known as the Bungle Bungles) in Western Australia, Australia. Access is usually by lengthy backpacks, although helicopter fly-by tours can be arranged. Beehive Arch has a span of 17 meters and a height of 13 meters.

The Bungle Bungles were only brought to the attention of the world in the 1980's. They are a vast area of multi-colored sandstone that has been carved into extremely photogenic landforms. There are many, many natural arches in the Bungle Bungles. Most are undocumented. Photos of a few are found here and here.
