By Road

To discover Mornington Sanctuary, travel along the Gibb River Road to the signposted turnoff. The distance to Wilderness Camp from the following is:

330 km (5 hours) from Derby;
550 km (7 hours) from Broome;
565 km (8 hours) from Kununurra; and
385 km (6 hours) from Fitzroy Crossing.

From the turnoff (at Mt House) drive a further 88 km (1.5 to 2 hours) south to the Wilderness Camp.

Mornington Wilderness Camp has 10 safari-style tents each with ensuite and a private balcony overlooking picturesque Annie Creek. The spacious tents are comfortably furnished with quality beds and linen, tea/coffee making facilities and mini bar. A laundry service is also available.

Mornington Wilderness Camp also has a shady, creek-side campground with the ablutions block providing flushing toilets and hot showers. We do not allow campfires, generators, fishing or pets at Mornington. Please note too that all our campsites are unpowered.

Campers are welcome to enjoy a gourmet dinner, accompanied by premium Western Australian wines, at the licensed restaurant or to just relax by the bar in the evenings. Dinner reservations are essential. Dinner is often followed by a presentation on the AWC conservation programs at Mornington.  Coffee and cake is available all day.

A visitor information area is situated near the bush restaurant where guests can learn about the local mammal populations and the diverse ecosystems of the region.

Reservations are not taken for the campground. As our focus at Mornington is on conservation, we have a maximum of 50 people or 25 vehicles in the campground at any one time.

There is a radio booth situated 100 metres off the Gibb River Road, on the Mt House/Mornington access road, which needs to be used to check campsite availability.

We ask that ALL visitors please stop at the radio booth to enquire as to the availability of a campsite, safari tents and current road conditions.
