Located on a working buffalo station just a short distance from the coast and the western border of the Kakadu National Park, Bamurru Plains is a unique bush camp on the Mary River floodplains, designed to bring a touch of elegance to the remote and beautiful wilderness.
There are only nine safari suites at Bamurru Plains, built among the savanna bush that fringes the floodplains and raised on a timber platform. The concept of the camp is simple in that it provides the key comforts like a comfortable bed, plush linens and a high pressure shower, but the focus of a stay here is the environment and the wildlife that calls this area home. Each suite is designed to blend into the bush and enhance the sights and sounds of the natural environment. There are no telephones, televisions, or CD players to distract from the experience, and the camp’s exclusivity means interaction with other tourists will be at a minimum.
Meals are wholesome yet innovative, fusing local produce and traditional cuisine with each meal. Guests can dine in the comfortable lodge building, enjoying the fantastic environment and the informal and personal level of attention that is only possible at a small lodge.
Activities, like the accommodations, focus on natural discovery and exploration. The Mary River area is home to over 230 species of birds and numerous other wildlife species including wallaby, wallaroo, dingos, wild pigs, and buffalo as well as night species like possums, water monitors, and other reptiles and amphibians. Enjoy an airboat tour on the Mary River floodplains or river cruises on the Sampan River where you can find one of the largest populations of crocodiles in the world. Fishing on the Sampan River or offshore reefs can be arranged with expert guides. During the dry season safari drives are popular and camp staff can arrange a day trip to Kakadu or Arnhem Land.Request Information
