Loved our time this week in Bamurru Plains. Stepping away and into this beautiful mix of wilderness, wildlife ,safari, bush experience is one of the most amazing things I have ever experienced. The remoteness of the lodge situated amongst wallabies and buffalos on the flood...More

Thank you for your review and I am so glad you enjoyed the Bamurru experience - it is a special place and hard not to become enthusiastic about birds, even if you are not initially! Most people have no idea what an extraordinary wildlife experience...More

We loved our 3 night a Bamarru Plains. From the moment we arrive just loved it. The isolation hits you immediately but the beauty was unexpected. There is wildlife everywhere, birds, wallabies and buffalo..Our "tent" was clean and comfortable but basic. It is without the...More

It is BIG country up in the Northern Territory. It's rugged...you have to be tough to survive the heat, the humidity, the wet season, the dry season (and the odd Cyclone). The properties are BIG and so too the Buffalo and cattle that have to...More

Wow .... thank you for the most detailed and inspiring review I think I have ever read. You obviously stayed during the period when we transition from a fishing lodge focus at the end of the wet season 'run off' to our wildlife safari experiences...More
