Mary River Floodplains
Top End NT 0820

Bamurru Plains is Australia’s answer to the Okavango Delta and the coastal floodplains are home to prolific bird and wildlife, whilst nearby Kakadu and Arnhem Land are the heartland of Australia’s indigenous culture. The true luxury at Bamurru Plains is in sharing one of Australia’s most inspirational and spectacular landscapes with just a privileged few – with 300 km² of country and just 10 safari suites for in-house guests only, Bamurru exudes ‘Wild Bush Luxury’, with its understated and very natural style.

Ten safari bungalows are raised on stilts overlooking the floodplain with mesh screen ceiling to floor walls on 3 sides around the bed, providing you with an experience to hear, see and almost touch the wildlife and wilderness around you. The alarm clock in the morning is the call of Magpie Geese, after whom the camp is named, and Whistling Kites as the orange light of dawn spreads across the floodplain, all audible and visble without having to leave your bed!

The focus is on a supremely comfortable bed (500 thread count organic cotton linen, pillow menu) and specious en suie bathroom with high pressure showers. The décor reflects the region's earlier indigenous, hunting and pastoral history, with buffalo horns, explorer's maps, Aboriginal art work and fish traps as well as old photos providing a sense of the human heritage of the area. Each room has a cold water thermos, local flora and fauna reading materials, species list and binoculars. There is no internet access, no television or mobile phone coverage. A true escape to your immediate environment.

3 Night Ultimate Kakadu Experience

3 Night Ultimate Kakadu Experience

Book

Spend three immersive days at Bamurru Plains with one full day exploring World Heritage Listed Kakadu National Park.

Immerse yourself in the stone country of Kakadu and one of Australia's greatest strongholds of Aboriginal rock art and culture. Just a short hop by light aircraft across the river systems that separate Bamurru Plains from Kakadu brings you to the heart of this country. Rock art galleries reveal stories of Aboriginal people and their ancient culture. Textures of colours, vistas across savannah woodlands and floodplains provide a sense of the spirituality of this ancient landscape.

From rock overhangs and caves at Ubirr Rock (think classic scenes from Crocodile Dundee) to the meandering waters of the East Alligator River that drains from the stone country of Arnhem Land and marks the boundary between Kakadu National Park and Arnhem Land, this day will expose the senses to country that is rich in Aboriginal culture, flora and fauna.

Travelling with Wild Bush Luxury's field guides in our custom built vehicle, your day will include a bush picnic lunch and the chance to spend time with an Aboriginal guide on the waters of the East Alligator River before returning overland, with a stop at the Bowali Visitor Centre, returning in time for sundowner drinks, canapes and the comfort of the safari lodge as the sun sets over Bamurru Plains.

Inclusions on this package;

- Accommodation in a safari bungalow with eco-friendly ensuite
- All gourmet meals and beverages including alcohol
- Daily guided wilderness activities with our expert field guides which may include airboat tours on the floodplain, 4WD safaris, croc-spotting river cruises, quad bike safaris and guided walks
- 1 shared Kakadu Excursion on a Tuesday or Friday

Floodplain Chill Out - Kingfisher Suite

Book

This package is for those guests who don’t want to get too active and just want to soak up the sights and sounds of the bush in an inspiring location.

Package includes safari bungalow accommodation, meals and beverages only. This rate excludes all guided activities. Guided activities will be available for purchase on-site, at an additional cost per activity and are subject to availability.

The Kingfisher Suite reflects Bamurru's core philosophy of blending the accommodation as closely as possible with the surrounding bush, however, is designed to allow guests a superior sense of seclusion while retaining a spectacular outlook on the Swim Creek floodplain. The sense of scale in this floodplain setting is accentuated by the size of the suite and Bamurru's trademark ceiling to floor mesh screens allowing guests an intimate sense of exposure to the wildlife and wilderness outside.

With 81m2 of space in the bedroom alone, the suite features a king size bed, lounge area and (if travelling as a family) space to accommodate a family of 5 in comfort - deluxe swags are provided for children to sleep out on the enclosed suite verandah. The proximity and sounds of the bush at night provide a sense of excitement while securely tucked up behind the screened walls of the suite.

For honeymooners looking for a sense of privacy, the Kingfisher Suite allows for in room dining, with a camp table set up for an intimate candlelit dinner with only the sounds of the bush as company. Meals are served by staff members from the main lodge with wines chosen from the lodge wine list.

The bathroom features twin basins and showers, within a décor of rustic chic timber and corrugated walls utterly in tune with the environment and pastoral heritage of the area. For maximum exposure (and only the local Agile Wallabies as company) the suite also offers a shower with full ceiling to floor views across the floodplain and surrounding paperbark forests.
