Wilderness Luxe in the Top End
Bamurru Plains is located on the edge of the Mary River floodplains just a short distance from the coast and the western boundary of the 1,980,400 ha Kakadu National Park. Just three hours' drive from Darwin, or take a scenic charter flight that only takes 30 minutes, and flies over some of the most spectacular wetlands in the world.
Surrounded by an exotic landscape of wild palms and twisting trees Bamurru Plains is the perfect spot from which to explore the mysteries and magnificence of this ancient land. The lodge is the perfect place to relax in a comfortable chair. During the heat of the day the cooling waters of the infinity pool beckon and later the lounging deck is the ideal place to watch wildlife graze through the camp. An expert chef conjures up delicious meals, peppered with local ingredients. Spacious and cool, each of the nine safari bungalows are built on stilts overlooking the floodplains frequented by a myriad of bird and animal life, all audible and visible without having to leave your bed.
A region of exceptional natural beauty and unique biodiversity, explore the area on an airboat skimming through a wilderness of clear water and tall grass or on a 4x4 safari or walking safari through the savannah searching for wallabies, buffalo and dingo or pause to consider an intriguing reptile or termite mound.
A profusion of bird and wildlife are on the doorstep of a unique bush lodge that exudes ‘Wild Bush Luxury’ and brings a touch of style to a remote and beautiful wilderness.
