At Gumbanan Wilderness Retreat you will be immersed in an amazing cultural experience for the whole family. There is a variety of camping choices including facilities for campers, camper trailers, caravans, plus furnished safari tents for couples and families. All camping sites are unpowered.

The bird-life around the campground is in abundance and is a must for any bird lover. It is also one of the few places in The Kimberley that the Gouldian Finch is home to.

We really enjoyed our stay here! It is an easy drive from Broome with a short dirt road entry which is fine to navigate in with 4WD. We took our 21 ft van in without issues. The camp hosts Peta and Mark were exceptional in making us welcome and providing a great atmosphere to the camp. Happy, smiling hosts that are truly skilled at being professional hosts. We had beautiful sunsets and sunrises and the view is picture perfect. This camp is a good base to explore the peninsula.


The McDundees on tour !

Fabulous spot , great views and good swimming at squeaky beach , 800 metre short walk from the camp . We based ourselves here and drove 15 min to cygnet bay for tours and back to the roadhouse for a tag along tour with Brian Lee



Came for 2 nights and had trouble leaving after 4! So beautiful and hosts Peta and Mark have helped to create a very friendly atmosphere. It also helped that we had a site right on the water with amazing views!
