My wife and I stayed at Mornington for 3 nights in June 2015 with five other couples. It was absolutely fantastic. The camping area beside a small creek was perfect for our camper trailer and the ablutions were excellent, especially considering the remote location. The service by the staff was first class and the prices for food and drinks are... More

Despite the nail biting suspense preceding our arrival at the Mornington radio booth (we arrived around 7.40), luckily there were still camping spots available and we spent two nights here. After many dusty roads we decided to opt for a spot of luxury and booked a sunset tour as well as dinner for the first night. The tour guide was... More

The inability to book a camping spot is unusual, and disadvantages families and locals. Despite calling a number of times, they will not accept bookings except from 7am at their radio on the side of the Gibb River Road. And as the numbers of campers is strictly limited (preference is given to the Glampers in the 'Safari Tents' and to... More

We camped here for 2 nights - 3 families, and loved every minute of it. Great campsite, plenty of hot water which was a real bonus, and to top it off a wonderful restaurant - service somewhat slow but tasty food. Really enjoyed the canoing. We all had an amazing time. We feel privileged to have seen this stunning part... More

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
