Located on the coastal floodplains of Australia’s Top End, close to Kakadu National Park, the property offers rustic, spacious and peaceful lodges in the heart of the savanna woodland. With access to over 300 square kilometres of floodplains, get ready to view Australia’s phenomenal wildlife through a range of unforgettable activities with passionate guides – from airboat safaris and cruises along the croc-filled Sampan River, to guided walks and quad bike adventures. Unwind afterwards with a dip in the lodge swimming pool and refuel with gourmet cuisine that embraces the natural bounty of the Mary River Floodplains.

Check-in to a unique lodge-style bungalow, each one boasting plush beds with organic cotton linen and large bathrooms with high-pressure showers. Built on stilts overlooking the floodplains and featuring mesh walls, the bungalows invite you to get closer to nature, heightened through the absence of televisions, telephones and internet access. With décor reflecting the region's history you can expect to see buffalo horns, explorers maps, aboriginal art work as well as old photographs introducing the heritage of the area. There is also one Kingfisher Suite, an expansive space ideal for families, and the private oasis of the Jabiru Retreat, two bungalows connected by a private plunge pool and seating area and perfect for larger groups of guests.

Bamurru Plains is an all-inclusive safari-style experience with all meals and drinks included in your stay.

Lunch might be served on the wildlife observation deck overlooking the floodplains while watching a changing cast of birds, buffalo and wallabies, canapes and sundowners can be enjoyed out in the wilderness during your afternoon activity or on the lodge deck just before dinner and, in the evening, a sumptuous three course dinner is served at a long timber table along with your fellow guests and field guides, offering the perfect combination of gastronomy and socialising.

A paradise for wildlife lovers, the area surrounding Bamurru Plains is home to one of the largest crocodile populations in the world, as well as a wealth of other animal and bird species. Ride on the open-top safari vehicles, spotting dozens of buffaloes and brumbies whilst taking in the beauty of the nature around you, or glide across the floodplains by airboat, passing crocs swimming among the grasses. There are also dedicated birding tours, guided walks and adrenaline-pumping quad bike adventures to spot even more of the region's wildlife.
