Stayed here as part of a Outback Spirit tour. Rooms and toilet are big and clean, only setback, there is no air-conditioning but only a fan, which can get pretty noisy and also you do not get much privacy because when the wind blow the...More

We had an absolutely magical few days at Davidson’s Arnhem Land safari. This place is simply magical, the camp base is stunning, a beautiful pool, open air living areas and simple yet superb cabins. Going out on country is the real highlight though. Our tour...More

Great place to visit and to see the wonderful Arnhemland area. Only criticism was, it is not a good idea for your owners, along with some staff, having a noisey late night drinking session on the premises, when the place is full of paying tourists....More

About
Description
Come and share the wonders of Mt Borradaile, the lily-covered billabongs and waterways teeming with birds, crocodiles and barramundi. The adjacent escarpment hides quality Aboriginal rock art in old More habitation caves and shelters, where the history of the region is vividly depicted in ochre paintings. Elegant hunting figures with spears and boomerangs illustrate life up to 50,000 years ago, while vibrant spirit figures and ships show the evolution of the world’s oldest continuing living culture.The newly rebuilt safari lodge melts into the surrounding bush, with the new ensuite cabins built to embrace the top end climate. Deluxe ensuite cabins provide a few more luxuries for those who enjoy a little spoiling. The central hub overlooks the pool and offers cold beers, wines and spirits at the bar for guests to enjoy in the lounge area or the poolside deck after an exhilarating day.Davidson’s Arnhemland Safaris is located on a 700km² exclusive lease in northwest Arnhemland, only fifty minutes by light plane from Darwin. Mt Borradaile is a registered Aboriginal sacred site, a uniquely spectacular and culturally significant place entrusted by the traditional owners to Max Davidson and his highly trained guides to share with small groups of visitors.
