Information

Mount Matthew is located in the heart of the king Leopold Range Conservation Park and is a 10 minute Drive from Mount Hart Wilderness Lodge which offers stylish accomodation, camping facilities, and fine cuisine to travellers.

Mount Matthew was named after Matthew Forrest who first explored this section of the Gibb River Road area in 1870.

The majestic Barker River flows through the centre of Mt Matthew gorge’s steep cliffs of black dolerite rock. Here travellers can experience beautiful cascading waterfalls, explore delightful swimming holes and rock pools, go fishing for black brim or freshwater prawns, or walk into the centre of the gorge admiring and photographing the fascinating and incredible array of bird, plant and animal life. Overnight Fly-in Guests to Mount Hart Wilderness Lodge can use the safari jeep to independently drive themselves to Mount Matthew or Yellowman Gorge, which are only a short drive from the homesteads at Mount Hart Wilderness Lodge.
