WELCOME to Rum Jungle Bungalows!

Simply lovely little bungalow-style rooms set in a tropical and native garden, each with a Queen Bed & Ensuite shower & toilet and shaded verandah. Each bungalow has a personal car park alongside. All rooms have coffee & tea making facilities and supplies, plates & cutlery, a sink, small fridge, fan, TV and air-conditioner.

BREAKFAST: Please bring your own breakfast supplies.

MEALS: There are no cooking facilities in the Bungalows. You may like to self-cater using the BBQ and tables in the water garden, or there are a couple of licenced places, serving breakfast, lunch and dinner meals or as take-aways, within easy walking or short driving distance.

POOL: The cool and refreshing, shaded swimming pool area is a wonderful place to relax, read or float.

The bungalows are situated on the edge of the township of Batchelor, which is just 18 kms from the entrance to Litchfield National Park. 3 lovely little detached bungalow-style rooms set on an acre of quiet & serene, tropical & native gardens, bounded on three sides by eucalypt woodland savanna.

Each bungalow is close to the swimming pool area – very relaxing, refreshing, cool & shaded by the surrounding tropical garden.

This delightful accommodation is ideal for a relaxing break or to use as a base to explore Litchfield National Park.

The Bungalows is a perfect place to spend a peaceful night or two, just over a one hour drive from Darwin.

When staying here you can get an early morning start to visit Litchfield National Park; you may find a favourite spot all to yourselves – especially mid-week.

The Bungalows is a great place to stop, rest and relax during your Top End travels. Locals also love it here for a peaceful ‘staycation’ and to just hang-out.

We look forward to seeing you here enjoying Rum Jungle Bungalows as much as we do.

>A green and leafy oasis in the Dry Season ~ A cool and lush retreat from the heat in the Wet! Quiet & serene: "It's simply gorgeous!".
