We arrived early at the front gate and radioed the reception to check availability. And we were in!! Great, now for the 90 kilometre drive to the camp (which was very smooth). We camped and the facilities are great but we also dined at the restaurant (6 star performance given the remote location). The gorges and canoeing and staff and... More

Everything about Mornington is right. The safari style tents are shaded and have everything you need. Dining scores maximum points for the quality of the food and also the ambience. It is a shame that other camps run by APT and Emma Gorge come a very poor second.

It's 80 kms off the main road .... but well worth the detour. There's a limit to the number of guests that can stay. Facilities are either camping site or fixed tents with ensuites. The fixed tents are very comfortable and located by Annie Creek. Central kitchen/dining and campfire area. Wilderness camp is eco-tourism set within an operating cattle station... More

We enjoyed 3 days here in August. The accommodation and facilities are excellent considering where you are. We flew in for our stay as time was important. We were met by Di and taken to our accommodation before heading off for the Sir John Gorge for sundowners. The safari style tents have ensuite facilities, a sunny deck to relax on... More

Driving the Gibb in september is just perfect! A you don't have the crowd so you don't drive in the dust of other cars and B you don't have to make reservations in advance so you can decide to stay a night longer at places that you like. So we did at Mornington. The road in is bumpy but ok... More

We really wish we stayed two nights for two reasons- it's really great there with friendly staff, beautiful gorges, a lovely ensuite safari tent, amazing food AND because of all that plus the pretty nasty road to get in there you need to allow a lot of time to drive it. We got three punctures so really needed more than... More

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
