Mt Hart Wilderness Lodge - Gibb River Road, Kimberley - Located in the heart of the King Leopold Range Conservation Park, on Western Australia's spectacular Gibb River Road, Mt Hart Wilderness Lodge is the ideal base for exploring the stunning outback gorge country of the West Kimberley.Unfortunately Taffy Abbot no longer runs Mt Hart. As from 2012 it is now run as a joint management venture between APT Kimberley Wilderness Adventures and D.E.C (The Department of Environment And Conservation - formerly CALM). We believe that they will still be offering camping.
