We had two nights at Mornington on our recent OutBack Spirit tour. We stayed two nights in safari tents with balconies which overlooked the creek, and were serenaded by bird-song all day. It was our first experience of glam ping. We were in a tent on a raised dais, complete with double and single beds, a kitchenette and en-suite.i Meals... More

We loved this place for lots of reasons, but at the top of the list was the kayaking on the magnificent Dimond Gorge and the very informative evening talk and video presentation on the work of the AWC ( not on every night, check it out and don't miss it). We also did something very rare on our 11week trip... More

This place really annoyed me! It's run by the Australian Wildlife Conservatory, and we were interested in their work, had planned to stay 3 nights. Now their expensive cabins might be great. However we were on a camping trip. They refuse to take bookings for the campsite - instead they expect you to line up at the gate and ask... More

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

Leaving Emma Gorge, which was like a tented backpackers, we were expecting a long drive over bad roads. 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...
