Award winning Imintji Campground and Art Centre, Gibb River Road: ‘A Place to Sit Down’
Once an important rest point for bullock drivers on the Gibb River Road, Imintji Camping with Custodians initiative provides a welcome stop-over for travellers, with newly refurbished campgrounds, a thriving Art Centre. And modern amenities including wifi and even barista-made coffee.
The campground being built provided a turning point for the remote community, turning it into a thriving destination and a reason for locals to stay and work. The Campground provides employment for around 12 local people and the knock-on economic development at the community shop has brought the town back to life. In 2017 the Campground won a national public engagement and community planning award.
