About this campground
The privately operated Mount Hart Wilderness Lodge is a good base from which to explore nearby Dawungumen mindi (Matthew Gorge), Mayal mindi (Annie's Creek) and Dudungarri mindi (Barker Pool) as well as small pockets of rainforest below Mount Matthew. This is an ideal spot for groups of bushwalkers, birdwatchers and other nature lovers. Please note that these sites are for picnic only and camping is only available at the lodge.
The tariff includes stylish and comfortable accommodation in heritage homesteads, three course dinners and breakfast, restaurant, libraries and private gorges. Mt Hart Wilderness Lodge also has shady riverside camping facilities.
Pay attention to all warning signs, however just because a sign isn’t there doesn’t mean crocodiles aren’t present. If you are unsure don't swim, canoe or use small boats in estuaries, tidal rivers or pools and contact the nearest Parks and Wildlife office.
Mobile phone and internet - coverage is intermittent. Check with your service provider before you go.

We recognise and acknowledge Ngarinyin Aboriginal people as the traditional owners of Wunaamin Conservation Park.
Both the Wilinggin word ‘Wunaamin’ and Bunuba word ‘Miliwundi’ name the mountain ranges. Note the difference in spelling between Miluwindi Conservation Park and Wunaamin Miliwundi Ranges. Bunuba people have different variations and pronunciations of the word for nearby areas – Miluwindi is the area the conservation park is located, while Miliwundi is the name of the mountain range that is located within Bunuba country.
“The traditional connection to this country is through the law of the Wanjina Wunggurr.
Ngarinyin people believe that the Wanjina are their ancestors, who came and ‘put themselves’ in the rock when the world was soft. Wunggurr is the Rainbow Serpent, who usually lives in deep water pools and is close to the Wanjina.
Wunggurr, the Rock Python/Rainbow Serpent, is most concentrated in the permanent waterholes of the area but underlies the entire country and the sea in a more diffuse way.”
