Where is it?
Mornington Wildlife Sanctuary, 550km north-east of Broome
How to see it for yourself?
At 3207 square kilometres, Mornington Wildlife Sanctuary is one of the largest non-government protected areas in Australia. The Mornington Wilderness Camp has ten safari-style tents and is open to visitors from May to October. It is accessible by 4WD or private air charter only. By 4WD, follow the Gibb River Rd 330km from Derby. Turn off at Mt House and continue south for 88km. If you’d like to capture this view, take a scenic flight out of Broome with King Leopold Air.
Why I love it
“The landscape is spectacular – dramatic mesas, cut by valleys and gorges, overlooking expansive plains and a network of rivers and streams. This amazing 312,000-hectare nature reserve is home to a diversity of wildlife, including endangered species such as the Gouldian finch. The view is all the more special knowing that Mornington is the only property in northern Australia to record an increase in native mammal populations.” – Catherine Harper, Australian Wildlife Conservancy
