We camped for 2 nights. The 43 K drive in from the Gibb River Road was in vey good condition. The campground is very big with excellent and clean showers and flushing toilets. All very picturesque with grass, shade trees etc. There were only about 20 other campers/caravans, possibly because of the cost - $25 entry and $20 per person... More

This is about 50 kms up a dead end road, our drive there was very hard and bumpy but when we left, the road graders had been through and it was much easier. There is a $25 entrance fee plus $20 per person to camp which makes it expensive although the entrance fee is said to go to an Australian... More

Stayed at Charnley River as Mornington Wilderness was full - and we had a lucky escape by all accounts due to numbers. Could not say that about Charnley as it was beautiful, not busy, great ablutions and fabulous gorge walks with swimming at the end - Grevillea Gorge was there just for us! Will definitely return to do the remaining... More

We spent 3 days there after our caravan broke down and was sent back to derby. Lorrie and chicko were great hosts helping us out in every way and would be the best camp bosses on the gibb. As for the station it is stunning to see with wild life through out the grounds. Grass can be a little dead... More

Lovely amenities with hot gas showers, spacious grassed, shady campground, helpful friendly managers, lovely gorges and swimming holes and best of all, not too busy even in peak season. I would highly recommend this station as part of your Gibb a River Rd trip. Well worth the drive in.

The managers of this property Lorrie and Chicko were so very helpful an informative. We stayed in May 2015 and there were only about 6 other campers. Lovely hot Showers / Toilets , which we got to share with many frogs. Lots of wallabies around the camp site. We went to visit Grevillia Gorge and had the whole Gorge to... More

Loved our short stay here. We wish we had longer. Next time we do the Gibb we will be back again. Some of (all of) the gorges are amazing. And you get them mostly to yourself due to not many people venturing into the station. We will be back again..

Great campsite and plenty of room. Managers most helpful. Plenty of wildlife. In fact we met two young dingoes on the road out which were very friendly and stayed around showing off for some time. One of the best places for natural wildlife.

We stayed at Charnley River Station about a month ago. It was one of the highlights of our trip from Broome to Darwin. It was peaceful and uncrowded, the showers were clean and hot and Lorrie and Chicko were incredibly helpful. Unfortunately Chicko had an accident on our last day so we didn't get chance to say goodbye and thank... More
