Bamurru Plains is Australia’s answer to the Okavango Delta, located on a 300km² of private buffalo station, just west of the Kakadu National Park on the Mary River floodplains. Bamurru invites guests to share in a profusion of bird and wildlife right on their doorstep in a unique bush camp that exudes ‘Wild Bush Luxury’ and brings a touch of style to the discovery of a remote and beautiful wilderness.

Airboat safaris are one of the best ways to explore this wilderness, skimming across the floodplain watching tens of thousands or birds take flight, or slowly cruise down the Sampan river looking for crocodiles along the bank. Guided walks and open top 4WD safaris will take you out to the further reaches of the property on the lookout for wild brumbies, dingoes or a perfect Top End sunset to watch while enjoying canapés and a sundowner drink.

Nine Safari Bungalows built on stilts overlook the floodplains, with mesh-screen ceiling to floor walls, provide a truly unique experience in which you can hear, see and almost touch the wildlife and wilderness around you.

Map & Directions

Bamurru Plains is located 2.5 hours drive from Darwin airport or 3 hours drive from Darwin CBD and 2.5 hours drive from Kakadu. The road is sealed for most of the drive, with the last 45 minutes or so on unsealed, but well maintained roads. All self-driving guests will need to wait for one of our guides at the main gate before leaving your vehicle parked securely and transferring to the main lodge in a Bamurru Plains vehicle.

For those guests keen for a more scenic arrival to Bamurru Plains, we can arrange for a 30 minute scenic flight from the General Aviation Terminal at Darwin Airport. Fly over some of the most spectacular wetlands in the world before landing at our private, all-weather airstrip where you will be greeted by a guide and transferred about 25 minutes by road to the main lodge.
