Mornington Wilderness Camp


Located in the heart of the Kimberley, Mornington Sanctuary covers more than 3,000 km2 of spectacular gorges and tropical savannah dominated by the Fitzroy River and King Leopold Ranges. Owned and managed by the non-profit AWC, Mornington Wilderness Camp provides a comfortable base from which to explore this remarkable sanctuary. It is a naturalist’s paradise, providing refuge for over 200 species of birds and a diverse range
of other wildlife. All proceeds from the Wilderness Camp are dedicated
to the conservation of wildlife in the Kimberley.


AWC offers many enjoyable day trips around Mornington.
Popular activities include canoeing down Dimond Gorge and swimming and
exploring Sir John Gorge. Before dinner, enjoy a glass of wine as you
watch the sun set over the stunning Central Kimberley ranges.


Nature lovers can indulge in various guided and self-guided
tours. From birdwatching to exploring habitats unique to the Kimberley,
there is something for everyone.


Private tours are available to exclusive hideaways such as
the tranquil pools of Fitzroy Bluff.

Sanctuary Tours

An enormous
wind-driven sand blanket covers much of central Australia, but at Newhaven,
shimmering salt lakes, pastel ochre clay pans, vibrant red parallel
dunes, undulating calcareous plains and dramatic purple-red quartzite
mountains cut with scarps and gorges punctuate the view. Each of these
landforms supports its own diverse range of plant communities that vary
in response to topography, soil and fire history. These communities
create a scattered patchwork of textured greens, yellows and greys,
providing stark contrast to the colours of the underlying terrain.

Parallel sand ridges, described by an
explorer as “an ocean of spinifex covered sand waves”
characterise the southern-most parts of Newhaven. Further north, an
extensive system of salt lakes lay strewn along an ancient calcareous
drainage line from east to west across the property, culminating in the
16 km long Lake Bennett. The lake rarely contain water, except after
periods of intense rainfall, but its fringes are home to unique
communities of salt adapted plants.

A crescent of bluff-edged ranges
dominate the north eastern corner of Newhaven. Black-footed rock
wallabies survive among the rugged boulder fields and gorges of these
