Bamurru Plains

All-inclusive dining
Point Stuart, Mary River Floodplains

Inspired by the luxury camps of Africa, this 10 room exclusive lodge offers a prolific wildlife experience with exclusive access to a spectacular 300km² property. Located on the coastal floodplains of the Mary River close to Kakadu National Park, Bamurru’s emphasis is on exposing you to one of the most significant ecosystems in Australia.

Rooms

The ‘Wild Bush Luxury’ concept brings a uniquely Australian style to your stay, offering a choice between their Safari Bungalows and their Kingfisher Suites. The focus in the rooms is on a supremely comfortable bed and a spacious en suite bathroom with high pressure showers. Each room has a cold water thermos, local flora and fauna reading materials, species lists and binoculars. Proudly without Wi-Fi or even mobile phone reception, a stay here allows you to focus on nature’s stage show.

Facilities

On-site Experiences

An extensive experience program explores the surrounding country away from the lodge, with airboat trips on the wetlands, river cruises in search of crocodiles, bird watching, astronomy evenings, bush drives, quad bike safaris and guided wilderness walks, while ancient rock art and indigenous culture are an easy optional day trip out into Kakadu.

The Hide

‘The Hide’ provides a secluded way to experience the beauty of Bamurru Plains with the option of a private picnic lunch from six metres high in the treetops.

Wildlife Observation Deck

The wildlife observation deck features a BBQ firepit area, a wet edge swimming pool with views across the floodplains and a covered lounge area for sitting out the heat in the middle of the day.

Dining

Start the day with a hot breakfast and lunch is usually served on the wildlife observation deck overlooking the floodplains. Canapés out in the wilderness while out on afternoon activity are followed by a three-course dinner hosted by a safari guide. Guests can watch our chef create superb dishes in the open kitchen from the dinner table. A self-service bar with a selection of beverages is included and available to guests throughout their stay. ‘The Hide’ provides a new way to experience the beauty of Bamurru Plains with the option of a private picnic lunch from six metres high in the treetops.

Accommodation

Safari Bungalows

From $510 per person, per night

The very design of the safari bungalows allows you to watch the parade of wildlife emerge to feed on the floodplain from the comfort of your bed! The alarm clock in the morning is the call of Magpie Geese and Whistling Kites and the orange light of dawn spreading across the floodplain. The décor reflects the region's earlier indigenous, hunting and pastoral history, with buffalo horns, explorer's maps, Aboriginal art work and fish traps providing guests with a sense of the human heritage of the area.

Kingfisher Suite

From $769 per person, per night

The king of Wild Bush Luxury’s Bamurru Plains is the Kingfisher Suite. It’s three times the size of the Safari Bungalows, offers private dining and there's oodles of space to relax while the wildlife comes to you! For maximum exposure (and only the local Agile Wallabies as company) The Kingfisher Suite also offers a shower with floor to ceiling views across the floodplain and surrounding paperbark forests.
