Bamurru Plains on the Mary River floodplains is Australia’s answer to the Okavango Delta. These coastal floodplains are home to prolific bird and wildlife, with almost a third of Australia’s species present, whilst nearby Kakadu and Arnhem Land are the heartland of Australia’s indigenous culture. This is the setting for a mesmerising Wild Bush Luxury experience.

Bamurru Plains offers one of Australia’s richest wildlife experiences: tens of thousands of magpie geese mingle with kites, egrets, herons and buffalo on the floodplain. Kookaburras, parrots, cockatoos and Agile Wallabies inhabit the fringing woodlands. Bamurru’s expert guides offer exhilarating airboat trips on the floodplains, safaris by open-top 4WD vehicles, fishing trips, quad bike safaris, guided wilderness walks, crocodile-spotting river cruises and excursions to ancient rock art galleries in Kakadu. Wake to the call of magpie geese and watch the parade of wildlife emerge from the comfort of your bed. Spot wildlife from six metres high in the treetops from the ‘hide’, and sit back with a drink and enjoy the soft ‘Wild Bush Luxury’ touches. The safari lodge and 300 square kilometres of surrounding country are exclusively for in-house guests, assuring a quiet, privileged outback experience. Bamurru’s team of passionate field guides focus on immersing guests in the story of the bush while the lodge provides a haven from which to closely connect with a unique Top End wilderness and with just ten safari suites blending seamlessly into the surrounding bush, you’ll forget there is an outside world.
