Good points: - Only 50 adults can camp at Mornington at once, making it a cozy group - Campsites are well separated - No generator noise - Diverse birdlife close at hand, which supporting bird list - 2 excellent gorges, for those with transport - Staff is enthusiastic - Free lectures some nights - Food in restaurant is excellent -...

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

Mornington is about an 8 hour drive or, as we did it, just a one and a half hour flight by light plane, East of Broome. We were met at the air-strip and driven back to the camp, about 5 minutes, and shown our accommodation. It is called a bush camp, but that does not really give the correct impression.... More

I really enjoyed staying in the tents at Mornington. They are very well appointed and comfortable, the food was excellent and the tours of the area were fantastic. A well kept secret.

Just returned from 3+ weeks on the GRR (Gibb River Road) with myself and my husband and another couple. This wilderness camp is quintessential Kimberley - tented safari tents (camping available as well) - run as a wilderness sanctuary. The tents were great - with en-suites - just watch out for the resident frogs. The gorges are great - but... More
