Bamurru Plains

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, whilst nearby Kakadu and Arnhem Land are the heartland of Australia’s indigenous culture. This is the setting for a mesmerising wilderness experience. Nine safari suites blend seamlessly with the surrounding bush and focus on key luxury comforts: a supremely comfortable bed, innovative cuisine and premium wines. Bamurru Plains deliberately tries not to be a typical luxury hotel room in the bush, but a haven from which to closely connect with a unique Top End wilderness. 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, fishing trips, four-wheel drive safaris, scenic helicopter flights, and tours to the rock art galleries of Arnhem Land. In the heat of the day, relax in the pool looking out over the floodplains as buffalo wallow. In the evening sit back with a sundowner drink and enjoy the soft ‘Wild Bush Luxury’ touches. Bamurru Plains lodge and 300km2 of country are exclusively for in-house guests, assuring a quiet, privileged outback experience.
