Jarnem camping area
From this isolated campsite, about 30 km off the highway, you can do the Jarnem Walk. This excellent 7.5 km hike is the highlight of a stay here, with eroded sandstone beehive formations reminiscent of the Bungle Bungle Range, as well as open savannah and, in more sheltered areas, stands of livistona palms. Depending on the time of year, there can be good birdlife and wildflowers as well. Rock art at Nigli Gap is another nearby attraction. Generators are not permitted at this site, but there is a tank – for drinking water only (not showers).

This campsite is located in Keep River National Park
Some of the best short walks in the country await you in Keep River National Park. Right on the border with WA, it’s the start of the Kimberley, so there are some magnificent Bungle Bungle rock formations, ravines full of towering livistona palms, spinifex plains and eucalypt woodlands. Water is in short supply, but there is a public water tank about 5 km off the Victoria Hwy, just past the ranger station. An information board is situated at the ranger station, and a few small walks go from there, including to a stone structure used by Aboriginal people to hunt birds. Roads are inaccessible during the Wet, and can be quite difficult immediately after the Wet.
