For outback scenery and Aboriginal culture, Mitchell River National Park in the rugged Kimberley region, is among the best in Australia. Spectacular landscapes including the Mitchell Plateau and the thundering Mitchell Falls.
A bushwalking track leads to the falls where you can enjoy a refreshing dip. Take a plane or chopper ride over the falls to feel their majestic power.
The Mitchell Plateau abounds in wildlife and plants. There’s rainforest, open woodlands of gum trees, and watercourses lined by pandanus palms and paperbark trees.
The Mitchell River National Park is also home to other beautiful terrain including Merton Falls, Surveyors Pool, Mitchell and King Edward Rivers. The area is home to many ancient rock art sites, most which have remained untouched for thousands of years.
There are basic camping facilities throughout the park.
Access is by four wheel drive only from the Gibb River Road between Derby and Wyndham and may be limited during the wet season.
Camping in Western Australia’s natural areas is a special experience. Selected campgrounds from across the state are now bookable online for a trial period.
