  • SUMMARY
  • DETAILS
  • VIDEO

Bamurru Plains is located on the edge of the Mary River floodplains just a short distance from the coast and the western boundary of Kakadu National Park.

The "Lodge" is the focal point for dining and gathering with other guests, the building has a quieter library area with reference books and some privacy from the more communal areas in the rest of the building, which includes the dining area. The front 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.

Accommodation

The camp has nine safari bungalows built amongst the pandanus vegetation on the edge of the wetlands. Each of them has been built with privacy uppermost in mind and to take advantage of the spectacular views across the wetlands. Each bedroom has a screened balcony with views towards the floodplains. Rooms are available in twin and king double configurations and extra bedding is available in the form of a deluxe swag.

En-suite bathrooms wrap around one side and/or the rear of each safari bungalow with high pressure showers and hot water. All rooms have ceiling fans for the dry months of winter (April to October) and air conditioning can be provided in three rooms during the wet season months.

Please note that Bamurru Plains is a 'camp' and as such exposes guests to the sights and sounds of the bush around them. Keeping this in mind, the safari bungalows do not have televisions, CD players, mini-bars, telephones, internet access. Hair dryers are available on request.

Activities

Activities focus on early morning and late afternoon when the wildlife and the light are at their best.

During a two night stay at Bamurru Plains a guest would expect to participate in a number of included activities such as: a river cruise spotting birds and crocodiles on the Sampan River (season and tidal conditions permitting), four wheel drives in open top safari vehicles, an airboat trip on the floodplains and a bush walk in the savannah woodlands that fringe the floodplains.

Activities available at extra cost include: fishing (barramundi), scenic helicopter flights, watching the seasonal buffalo muster on the floodplains or taking a day trip to Kakadu National Park.
