The park is biologically significant and contains over 50 species of mammal, 220 birds and 86 amphibians and reptiles, including the Saltwater Crocodile, King Brown snake and Taipan. The park is part of the Prince Regent and Mitchell River Important Bird Area, identified as such by BirdLife International because of its importance for a range of bird species, especially those retricted to tropical savanna habitats.
History and management
The park is located within the Ngauwudu Management Area. The park was formed in 2000 without the consent of the traditional owners or following proper procedure under the Native Title Act. It seems that Native Title has not been determined yet over this area, which falls into the Wanjina Wunggurr Uungguu but on adjacent country. The Department of Environment and Conservation is in a cooperative management arrangement with the Kandijwal Community. Three groups of Aboriginal people have traditional lands within the National Park; Worrora, Wurnambal-Gaambera and Ngarinyin.
Mitchell River National Park
lies in a remote part of the Kimberley and contains majestic waterfalls, Aboriginal rock art and sites of cultural significance to the Wunambal people. It is accessible by four-wheel-drive vehicles only. Caravans are not permitted due to the road conditions, however off-road camper trailers are allowed.
Fire rings are provided but collecting wood in the national park is not allowed. Limited wood is provided for cooking. Please do not bring your own wood as it can spread weed seed and plant disease that can kill native flora. Light fires only in fireplaces provided. Preferably use your own portable gas or fuel stove.
Bookings do not apply at this campground. It operates on a first come - first served basis. Please contact the campground during peak holiday season for availability.
