Mt Hart wilderness lodge Mt Hart Lodge – the Heart of the Kimberley

The trip along the King Leopold Ranges from the Gibb River Road (GRR) is a beauty and the camping area they have set up at Mt Hart Lodge, along the edge of the Barker River is delightful.

Many people we spoke to just loved the place for its solitude and being a few km off the GRR it is way less crowded than other campsites in the region.

We tore ourselves away after three days here - we'd thoroughly recommend the place to anyone ... and well worth the 50km drive off the GRR.
