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

The only reason I’m giving one star to Bumurru lodge is the misleading advertising of it as Luxurious Lodge. For me luxury implies no bugs falling in your food wine water as you try to eat dinner, lizards and frogs in your room or smell...More

I am very sorry that your experience at Bamurru did not work to your satisfaction and can only apologise. I do feel that I should put some of your comments in perspective - we are not endeavouring to be a lodge in the mould of...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

Loved our stay at Bamurru Plains. Stayed at the end of the dry season, so flood plains were dry. (Be awesome to stay in wet for fishing). We mainly lazed by the pool after spending a week in the top end/Kakadu. But we got driven...More

About
Description
In the midst of the savannah bush on the edge of the Mary River floodplains, Australia’s answer to the Okavango delta, Bamurru Plains’ is the setting for a wilderness experience like no other. With just nine ...More safari suites, each blending seamlessly with the surrounding bush and with a focus on the key luxury comforts, a supremely comfortable bed, innovative Australian cuisine and premium wines (no TVs, minibars or telephones to distract from the wildlife outside), Bamurru deliberately tries not to be a typical luxury hotel room in the bush. The floodplains and savannah woodland offer one of Australia’s richest wildlife experiences: tens of thousands of Magpie Geese mingle with Whistling Kites, egrets, herons and buffalo on the floodplain, while Blue-winged Kookaburras, parrots, cockatoos and Agile Wallabies inhabit the fringing woodlands. Bamurru’s team of passionate field guides offer a variety of activities, including exhilarating airboat trips on the floodplains, cruises on the Sampan River to spot crocodiles, four-wheel drive safaris, scenic flights over the floodplains and coastline. We can also arrange tours to the rock art galleries of Arnhem Land or guided fishing trips. In the evening, sit back with a sundowner drink and canapés and enjoy the soft ‘Wild Bush Luxury’ touches that are the Bamurru trademark. There is also an open bar, a small swimming pool and nature reference library. Bamurru Plains, its facilities and 300 km² of country are exclusively for the use of its guests, so you can be assured of a quiet, privileged outback experience. Bamurru Plains is a member of the Luxury Lodges of Australia Less
