We spent 3 nights at Walkabout Lodge and it was beyond our expectations, the room was very comfortable and well maintained. The staff were very friendly and helpful, the woman at reception was amazing and made you feel so welcome, a pleasure to deal with. The entire staff we encountered throughout the lodge,cafe,bar and pool were friendly and accommodating making our stay a pleasure. Well done

The staff here were super friendly and went out of their way to help us. When our taxi was late, Shelley at reception just bundled us into the Hilux and dropped us at the airport herself. She would not take money and told us lots of excellent local things to do. Big thanks Shelley. Rooms are simple with everything you need. There is a microwave and a kettle and minibar fridge so freezer and cooking options are limited. We had our own camping gear for that. The bar and restaurant are pleasant with nice views to the sea. The meals were a little overcooked and we heard they were a little hit and miss depending on the chef. We stayed twice in between camping and were very happy with the lodge as a drop zone to refuel between camps. Also the chopper dropped into the grounds for tours and transfers which was cool. We could also leave our vehicle here for a few days which was great.

The hotel was a good place to stay while waiting for our trip to northeast Arnhem land. The staff were lovely and very friendly. Breakfast was great as was the dinner at the restaurant. The room size a good size, good shower and nice comfortable bed. Great number of plugs for all your electrical devices.
