Pretty Pond

$462.00

We went canoeing on the Fitzroy River near Mornington Wilderness Camp in the Kimberley and discovered this delightful spring-fed waterfall and pond. The stony pond bed was hard to walk on but still some of us had a swim with Sarah my youngest daughter the subject of this work, quickly painted wet on wet in an impressionist style.  I loved the way the different coloured stony pond bed reflected multicoloured through the ripples.

Located in the heart of the Kimberley, Mornington Wildlife Sanctuary covers more than 3,000 km2 of spectacular gorges and tropical savanna dominated by the Fitzroy River and King Leopold Ranges.

Owned and managed by the non-profit Australian Wildlife Conservancy (AWC), Mornington Wilderness Camp provides a comfortable base from which to explore this remarkable sanctuary. It is a naturalist’s paradise, providing refuge for over 200 species of birds and a diverse range of other wildlife. All proceeds from the Wilderness Camp are dedicated to the conservation of wildlife in the Kimberley.

AWC offers many enjoyable day trips around Mornington. Popular activities include canoeing down Dimond Gorge and swimming and exploring Sir John Gorge. Before dinner, enjoy a glass of champagne as you watch the sun set over the stunning Central Kimberley ranges. Nature lovers can indulge in various guided and self-guided tours. From birdwatching to exploring habitats unique to the Kimberley, there is something for everyone.

Relax and soak up the atmosphere with a few nights in the safari tents, which overlook Annie Creek. Alternatively, pitch your own tent in the shady campground. In the evenings, dine under the stars at the bush bar and licensed restaurant.

For the adventurous traveller, this is a unique opportunity to experience one of Australia’s leading wilderness camps while also helping to save Australia’s endangered wildlife.
