Bungle Bungle Wilderness Lodge and Mitchell Falls Wilderness Lodge offer
tented cabins with private ensuite facilities.

situated on the picturesque riverbank, this wilderness camp also provides
easy access to Wandjina and Gwion (Bradshaw) rock art sites.
All accommodation is permanently staffed with dedicated hosts,
ensuring you experience the wilderness of the Kimberley in comfort and
style. Hosts will happily share touring advice and, in constant contact with
