Bamurru Plains, Northern Territory
Experience wild bush luxury at Bamurru Plains – an extraordinary wilderness on the coastal floodplains of the Mary River delta in the Top End of Australia’s Northern Territory. Situated just west of Kakadu National Park, Bamurru Plains is utterly exclusive, rustically chic and in total simpatico with the surrounding country.
Exuding a style of ‘Wild Bush Luxury’, guest accommodation is provided in nine spacious and cool safari bungalows, each with an ensuite bathroom and a private deck overlooking the surrounding wilderness. The central lounge area and pool deck are the perfect places to relax in the middle of the day, with a library offering a collection of reference books and a well stocked bar where you can help yourself to a cold drink at any time of day.
A style of accommodation more akin to some of the safari camps in Africa, but new to Australia, Bamurru Plains’ attraction lies in the wonderful diversity and sheer volume of bird, reptile and wildlife of the surrounding floodplains and savannah woodland. This fragile ecosystem is alive with an extraordinary variety of birdlife and wildlife. Agile wallabies, dingoes, brumbies, buffalo and goannas are all regular sightings, however, it is the prolific birdlife that makes this area a unique nature attraction. With the annual monsoon, the floodwaters from Arnhem Land usher in an annual cycle of environmental rebirth and the floodplains are replenished with water and life. As the year progresses, the waters retreat and the vast plains come into view again.
Please note: Bamurru Plains is closed 01 November - 31 January each year. The camp is not suitable for children under 12 years.
Bamurru’s chef prepares delicious meals which are shared around a communal dining table with your fellow travellers, hosts and guides. Lunch is often served on the deck, perhaps a BBQ, cooked as you refresh yourself in the swimming pool.
Bamurru appreciate that whilst an exclusive bush experience doesn’t need to be five-star in the traditional sense, there are key elements to an exclusive stay in the bush: supreme bedding, quality linen, great bathrooms, superb food and wine and excellent guiding.
