Stayed two nights, basic ensuite cabin, late in dry season and rangers office closed but no worries. Bruce looked after us with info on walks and wild life, prepared home cooked meals which were very tasty and good company while dinning with us. There was only the three of us at the camp so nice and quiet, especially quiet on...

Thanks to our guide Bruce and the manager of the bush camp who gave us indications about what to do there , we had a wonderful time as a family. We flew over by helicopter, went to Cathedral Gorge with Bruce and stayed overnight at the camp. Very nice and helpful staff. Delicious food. Breathtaking scenery. Definitely worth it !

Thanks Fran and team for kick starting our Kimberley adventure. A mix up with our booking via a tour company was quickly adverted. Meals and accommodation spot on. Would recommend to anyone prepared to travel 3 hours + on bumpy dirt tracks.

We tried for 18 mths to book the bush camp for May 2016, no matter what date in May we entered it always came up no availability for your dates. So we hired a campervan, imagine our annoyance when talking to a fellow tourist in the park, we find out the camp is only half full.????????

Thanks for the recommendation Tom P! Have to admit, we love having a pool within the Bushcamp, particularly if it is a warm day. After 30 years, we still love what we do and my cooking for our valued guests and Paul's touring/love for the area are no exception.
