All about the 2 Night Ultimate Wilderness Experience

Bamurru Plains is located on Swim Creek Station, a 303 sq km coastal buffalo pastoral property near Point Stuart in the Mary River Region. The property encompasses a variety of habitat including vast river frontage, coastal floodplains, savannah woodland, and paperbark swamps. The station is 10 km from Kakadu National Park’s western boundary (100km from Jabiru in Kakadu) and just over 100 km east of Darwin.

Bamurru Plains, a Wild Bush Luxury property in Australia's Top End, provides guests with an extraordinary wildlife experience on 300km2 of private land. Located just to the west of Kakadu National Park and known as Australia's answer to the Okavango Delta, Bamurru Plains allows up to 20 guests to enjoy exclusive access to miles of the Sampan River, the coast and the Mary River Floodplain system.

A profusion of bird and wildlife are on the doorstep of this unique bush camp and with only 10 safari-style bungalows, the focus of a stay at Bamurru is on the environment and the creatures for whom it is home. Each safari bungalow overlooks the floodplain and with mesh walls on three sides guests hear, see and almost touch the wildlife and wilderness around them, waking to the call of the magpie geese as the orange light of dawn spreads across the floodplains.

The range of guided experiences on offer (weather dependant) includes skimming across the floodplains by airboat, fishing, spotting crocs from the river boat and viewing the agile wallaby and buffalo on a open-top safaris. Other signature experiences include a Treetop sleep out in The Hide.

A stay at Bamurru Plains is bound to inspire a greater awareness of Australia’s unique and specialised environment while our ‘Wild Bush Luxury’ style ensures a truly comfortable stay.

Real Aussie Says:
Getting to Bamurra plains: Just three hours' drive from Darwin, or take a scenic charter flight that only takes 30 minutes, and flies over some of the most spectacular wetlands in the world. As the property is a working buffalo station, guests who are self-driving are required to leave their vehicle safely inside the entrance to the property. From here you will be picked up by a safari guide for the 20-minute drive on to the lodge.
