Mornington Wilderness


The safari tents at Mornington Wilderness Camp were fantastic - own toilet and shower - veranda out the back to sit out and watch the numerous birds (and the occasional sighting of the (harmless) common tree snake climbing effortlessly around the tree.

The staff were so welcoming, helpful, and goodhearted - the food was fantastic and changed nightly - steak, barramundi, chicken (huge serves) and dessert. The bar was great and not overpriced. They have an emergency tire repairs to fix punctures. The road to the camp was in good condition (better than the Gibb River Road) with only the last 10km needing 4WD.

We loved our stay and hope to someday go back again. The fact that all proceeds go toward saving endangered Aussie wildlife was very heartening. It was interesting to hear about the research they conduct. Guided birdwatching and other tours are available and for the non-4WD enthusiast it is possible to fly in from Broome via small plane - unsure of cost.
