Having stayed in a few "Eco Resorts" in WA (e.g. Karajini) our hopes were not high as we approached Mornington. However these guys really show how it should be done. The luxury safari tents really are luxurious, spacious and comfortable, with large beds, wonderful linens, and pleasant bathrooms. Waking up in our tent as the early morning sun streamed in,... More

This is a remarkable place. Mornington Wilderness Camp is a great place to stay - and given that it's 88kms off the Gibb, it's worth staying a few nights! The safari tent are just brilliant. There's plenty of space - they're certainly not small or cramped! Ours had a queen sized bed plus a single. They also have their own... More

At the end of a 90km road lies what we consider to be one of the highlights of the resorts along the Gibb River Road. Although appearing endless, the road is actually in good condition throughout its length and passes through a range of different habitats before reaching the Mornington Wilderness Park. This park is excellent. Run by the not... More

Arrived at Mornington Wilderness in the early afternoon and were shown to our safari tent which also provided our own toilet and shower facilities. It was totally comfortable, spacious and clean and provided ample space sharing with my husband as well as my brother. Sitting on our own private balcony watching and hearing the birdlife with a beer was bliss... More

The turn off from the Gibbs River road said 88 kms more I seem to remember and I was tired after a long drive. My heart sank but what a road- excellent conditions and wonderful scenery. It lifted my sprits. The Mornington Wilderness camp is a delight and I'm an East African safari guide. The design of the camp reminded... More

We had our first flat tyre 150 kms out, and were helped by 3 great locals, who were heading for a weeks fishing.Rachael did all the hard work, while her 2 male friends egged her on.As our other spare was rusted on...

We stayed in safari tents overlooking Annie Creek - with green frogs in the toilet (in spite of keeping the lid down). This is a beautiful place which offers a range of experiences rather than just accommodation. We swam at Sir John Gorge and canoe-ed in Dimond Gorge, which were both spectacular. The 5am bird watching tour was definitely worthwhile,... More

Mornington is a huge private nature reserve run by Austrlalian Wildlife Conservancies, whose mission is to buy up habitat for endangered species and then manage it scientifically. At Mornington they have de-stocked and are using special fire management techniques with considerable success to reestablish small mammal populations. It's not easy to reach, but it's well worth the effort. We stopped... More

We stayed in one of their "safari tents". These have basic furniture (beds and furniture on which to put your suitcases/bags). They are spacious and very clean. They have very good reading lights, which we much appreciated, since it does tend to get dark quite early and there is no internet service for guests. Our nights were quite cool, so... More
