Mount Barnett Roadhouse – Manning Gorge camping area
The camping area at Manning Gorge is 7 km north of the roadhouse, with shady sites on the riverbank and a good range of facilities. Its swimming hole is reputedly the best in the region, so it’s a very popular spot in the dry season. Additional accommodation is available at the roadhouse. Bring firewood and drinking water to this camping area on the Gibb River Rd, 406 km west of Kununurra, 108 km south-west of the Kalumburu Rd junction and 309 km east of Derby.

This campsite is located in Gibb River Road
The Gibb River Rd was originally built to transport cattle from the surrounding stations to Derby and Wyndham. Since those stations opened their doors to travellers, it has become one of Australia’s most popular tourist routes. It provides access to the magnificent Kimberley region and its very diverse landscapes, which range from lush, tropically vegetated river gorges and rainforests, to vast savannah woodlands and open plains, all of which have stood the test of time and prospered despite human intervention. The road covers a distance of about 650 km and should only be travelled in the dry season, May–Nov.
