May 23 – 26 Keep River National Park -Jarnem Campground

June 6, 2022 - Reading time: 2 minutes

Keep River is the point on the map where the Victoria River plains and escarpment country gives way to the Domes and what is known as the Kimberley really begins.

Jarnem campground is 32 kms along a fairly good dirt rd with the turn off only 3 kms from the NT/WA border. Jarnem rock provides a stunning backdrop and the campground is well spaced out and shady, while giving good access to the sun for solar. The Jarnem Loop walk is approximately six and a half kilometres in length and combines a lookout (with Telstra reception at the top) which provides stunning views across from the Victoria River escarpment country to the domes of the Kimberley. You then cross a eucalypt woodland into the dome country where natural archways, balancing rocks and caves form by water and wind erosion fascinate you. In addition under the cliff faces you come across First Nations paintings. It is a fascinating walk!

Jenemoon walk takes you along a shallow gorge with shallow pools of water. It obviously provided plenty of food as there is considerable evidence of middens and artwork in the shelters provided by the escarpment.

The third walk Goorrandalng loop is located at the campground closest to the Victoria Highway and wanders through a spectacular sandstone habitat. While only short in distance it fascinating and we were lucky enough to spot a number of red tailed cockatoo’s!
