We invite you to immerse yourself in an extraordinary bush experience on the coastal floodplains of Australia’s Top End. Bamurru Plains is a safari lodge with exclusive access to 300 km² of floodplains and savanna woodland on the Mary River, on the edge of Kakadu National Park. A profusion of bird and wildlife are at the doorstep of this unique bush experience that exudes ‘Wild Bush Luxury’ and brings a touch of style to the discovery of a remote and beautiful wilderness.
Top End Wilderness Photo Safari
Under the guidance of Canon Master Richard I’Anson, sought the world over, we promise a photography safari experience brimming with wildlife, wilderness and faces of people (and the world’s oldest rock art galleries) in faraway Arnhem Land.
Children Stay, Eat & Safari Free
Join our Ultimate Kakadu Experience and up to two children stay, eat and safari free when exploring the untamed wonders of Bamurru Plains 21 September – 13 October 2019.
The true luxury of Bamurru is its location. This beautiful wilderness region of over 300 square kilometres is shared by about 20 guests. The area is home to one of the largest crocodile populations in the world, and the annual migration of over one hundred thousand magpie geese is a sight to be seen.
A stay at Bamurru is bound to inspire a greater awareness of Australia’s unique and specialised environment. Watch as hundreds of birds take flight from around the infinity-edge pool, scan the shallows for big saltwater crocodiles as you skim across floodplains by airboat or slowly cruise the Sampan River watching for silver flashes of fish breaking the surface. On guided walks and game drives search for brumbies, buffalo, dingos and wallabies or pause to consider an intriguing reptile or the adaptations of a particular insect.
Your Ultimate Kakadu Experience includes Safari Bungalow or Kingfisher Suite accommodation, all chef prepared meals, beverages and a field guided Wild Bush Luxury experience program at Bamurru Plains. Your mob will be on the lookout for wildlife from open top safari vehicles. You’ll have the opportunity to head off the beaten path on a quad bike adventure, spot crocodiles on a river cruise departing from our private pontoon, and learn to crack a stock whip to name but a few. For parents, there is still the prospect of gourmet dinners, premium wine in comfort and civilization at the safari lodge.
A full-day shared Kakadu experience is also included getting you in front of the world’s oldest Aboriginal rock art galleries and culture. Your Kakadu experience is limited to 15 Bamurru Plains’ guests and departs on Tuesdays or Fridays only.
