Located to the west of Kakadu National Park on the Mary River floodplains, Bamurru Plains is a unique bush camp teeming with bird and animal life. It offers bungalows set amongst native bushland. Guests can enjoy river cruises, 4WD tours and safaris nearby. During the heat of the day, guests can enjoy the cooling waters of the infinity pool, or relax on the deck. A chef is available to cook delicious meals prepared with local ingredients. The bar is open all day so you can enjoy a crisp white wine, a gin and tonic or sparkling water whenever you wish. Each bungalow is built on stilts overlooking the floodplains frequented by bird and animal life. Rooms include a cold water thermos, reading material on the local flora and fauna, a species list and binoculars so you can appreciate the wildlife around you. Organic cotton bedding and a pillow menu are provided for maximum comfort. All meals served in the lodge building are wholesome and often made from fresh local produce. They are shared communally with guests, guides and hosts in an informal setting. Bamurru Plains is a 25-minute flight or a 3-hour drive from Darwin and 2.5 hours’ drive west of Jabiru in Kakadu National Park.

    Beautiful location, fabulous staff, great food, pleasant pool on the deck, nice room with amazing views, wallabies and water buffalo wandering around. We had a wonderful time and enjoyed meeting the team and other guests. The trips were very good...
