About Bamurru Plains

One of Australia’s unique Wild Bush Luxury camps, Bamurru Plains sits in the Mary River floodplains inside the vast Kakadu National Park. This special nine-suite resort offers an unfiltered look at one of the most wildlife-rich places on the continent, while also providing an almost unbelievable level of luxury. Aside from one of the most diverse collections of bird species on earth, guests will see wallabies, dingos, crocodiles, and a host of other reptiles and mammals. Each of the nine tented safari suites sits in a secluded part of the property. Privacy is at a premium here. Unless you venture to the main lodge, you do not have to cross paths with another soul (if you choose not to).

One of Australia’s unique Wild Bush Luxury camps, Bamurru Plains sits in the Mary River floodplains inside the vast Kakadu National Park. This special nine-suite resort offers an unfiltered look at one of the most wildlife-rich places on the continent, while also providing an almost unbelievable level of luxury. Aside from one of the most diverse collections of bird species on earth, guests will see wallabies, dingos, crocodiles, and a host of other reptiles and mammals. Each of the nine tented safari suites sits in a secluded part of the property. Privacy is at a premium here. Unless you venture to the main lodge, you do not have to cross paths with another soul (if you choose not to). Each suite has all the hallmarks of a luxury safari camp, such as a private deck and a large bed with plush bedding. Special mesh walls make it possible to enjoy views of the wildlife and scenery while keeping the suite interior free of insects. These unique walls also serve to keep your room perpetually cool. A high-pressure shower, oversized towels, and other creature comforts provide a sense of luxury that makes Bamurru a truly unique place to stay. Bamurru’s main lodge building features a spacious deck and an infinity swimming pool that overlooks the plains. Meals and drinks are served inside the lodge. Guests can choose to mingle with others, perhaps recounting the day’s wildlife sightings, or they can relax in peace and quiet in the special library area. There are a number of ways to explore the Mary River floodplains and the wider Kakadu National Park. Airboat tours will take guests to remote nesting places where rare birds make their home. Australia’s most-legendary species, the crocodile, is on display to guests who choose to take a river cruise. 4x4 wildlife drives and special birdwatching tours are also on the agenda. Pre-organized experiences are also available. Options for these special vacations include a hands-on wildlife photography master class, a culture-themed journey through the Aboriginal heartland, and all-inclusive trip where guests are whisked from Bamurru to the other Wild Bush Luxury camps around the country. What to do Catch sight of colorful birds and fearsome crocodiles during an airboat ride or river cruise. Take a dip in the lodge’s infinity swimming pool before enjoying an evening meal with other guests. Relax in your safari suite and take in the awesome natural beauty of Kakadu National Park.
